Alpha Financial Markets Consulting (LON:AFM) doesn't meet the Trend Template. It made a good IPO base breakout earlier this year before slipping back.

£G4M is another good example of why it's often too late if you wait for the news to emerge. The chart often breaks down long before negative news emerges. Share price topped out in October 2017 which was the last time it met Minervini's Trend Template. It's been in a downtrend since and was down ~40% before today's RNS.

Minervini calls it the 50/80 rule. On average a market leader will give back 70% of the move.

MySale (LON:MYSL) is a good example of why I follow the Mark Minervini maxim - "Never trade on fundamentals until the chart agrees." If you bottom fish a stock in a downtrend, you're much more likely to wake up one morning to bad news.

"How can anyone possibly predict at what level a falling knife will bottom out at? They usually bottom out at a level far below what people initially imagine." Couldn't agree more.
