How to find a stock which makes 1500% move in a year

Difficulty: Easy
If you want to beat the market by significant percent track and trade the significant moves in the market.


Use any of your favourite stock investing software. This example assumes excel based system.
Calculate the lowest close for a stock in last 260 days. If a stock has less than 260 days data calculate lowest close for those many days.
Calculate percent change from lowest close and select stocks which had 100% plus growth
Find the highest price in the 100% move and only take stocks which are within 25% of that highest price.
So this is your trading universe of stock which have made significant move of 100% or more and are as of today within 25% of the high during the move
Use a significant one day move scan on these stocks. e.g. say a 5% move ( 100 * (C - C1) / C1) >= 5 AND V >= 1000 AND V > V1)
Buy next day with 1% risk and stop below the low of previous two days bar
Trail with a stop
If you get stopped buy again on next breakout
Enjoy your profits

Tips & Warnings:

When you have a choice of candidates to enter, enter the newest member to the list first

If you want to follow technical analysis you will find several cup and handles, double bottom at top of range, W formations, triangles, bull flag, flat bases and all other esoteric patterns.

If you play around with entry techniques you will get better results

You can play around with position sizing and holding a portfolio of around 50 positions with a 2% position each.

All major winners in a year appear on this list. If you follow the approach religiously you will never miss a 1500% move, you will miss the first 100 but you can still capture the 1400%. Unless a stock gaps up 1500% in a day!
