Changes to my rules

Stockopedia has wrote several articles in the past about StockRank styles which make up the different ways that StockRanks are exposed to the different drivers of Quality, Value and Momentum.  I had always aimed for SuperStocks in the hope that this would be give the best possible chance of success during different periods of market cycles.  Now with the introduction of RiskRatings as a classification of market volatility I wanted to add the risk ratings into the rules.  It has been my strategy not keep the rules to a minimum and so I felt that I would have to replace rules rather than add more.

Adding the RiskRatings but excluding Highly Speculative then most of the highest volatile stocks should dissapear therefore I felt Spread (bps) could be replaced.  I also felt that with expanding to a possible 20 stocks that I could introduce some of the smallest caps on the markets. So the Market Cap > 20 is now also removed.    I would be surprised to find any stocks with a market cap of less than £20m anyway however you never know.  If they qualify for the screener they would certainly be considered now.
