About Me:

Started buying stocks 2003.  Previously (2003-2017) a fundamentals driven value investor who completely ignored charts. Since April 2017 have used Mark Minervini's method of using charts and fundamentals.

When trading U.K stocks I ignore Mark's $12 share price rule as this would severely reduce the pool of potential stocks to trade. 

Both Mark's books are highly recommended.

Mark has been interviewed by Stocko a couple of times and from some of the comments on various threads there appears to be a few of us using his methods to trade the U.K stock market.

I don't use Stocko for DMA, I use quotestream L2 or I don't buy investment vehicles so I have never tried Mark's methods on them.

The VCP for Twitter can be seen best on a weekly chart, final pullback was less than 9%. The first pullback was deep at 45% but the base is long at approx 15 months.LGIH isn't as easy to spot, if you look at the price action between 6th-16th of August the daily range shrank to less than 2%. The ideal buy point was 19/08/19 as…

I've been watching JD Sports Fashion (LON:JD.) for sometime, it didn't form a handle or cheat sub 10% so I didn't buy when it broke above 652.

Mark made an interesting comment this week in his webinar. The U.S investing championship is back this year, there are approx 120 people in the stock competion, only 10 of them have any gains. I would have expected more just through random chance.
