Let's get straight to it - the CAN-SLIMesque guru screen...


Guru Screen Review

Sometimes this is easy, with only 4 or 5 hits on the screen - this week we have 16!

Plus500 (LON:PLUS)

Herbie47 mentioned last week it is close to dropping out - still there for now, lost ground this week.

Globaltrans Investment (LON:GLTR)

Watching for now - I missed the breakout, I expect that last week's slight price drop is natural profit taking after a good rally the week before.
