 New Features this Week Additional Value that we added this week

I have had time to program a new tool requested by a subscriber, however. This subscriber wants to identify stocks that have just reached the Relative Strength rank of 92. It may be that by investing in these stocks as they reach the RS 92 level rather than waiting for a breakout, one comes to the party earlier and makes more profit.

I haven't had time to research this hypothesis but hope to do so in the coming week and report finding in next week's newsletter.

You can access the tool like this:
