The Feedback thread in the General section is what I created that thread for.

I am looking for equities using the full Weinstein approach to maximise all gains, and I believe accumulating at the basing phase on new breaks higher and on the retests of the MA would provide the best opportunity for greater gains.

I have a few scans that I use that find the early Stage 2A breakouts and pullbacks. The simplest one is the Double Top P&F breakout scan that I use for the Daily Breakouts threads, which catches every breakout in the Nasdaq and NYSE markets with a market cap of over 50million. But this is only available for US stocks currently as the stockcharts scanner I use for point and figure breakouts only covers the US market. In order to do the same scan for UK stocks I'd need access to Dorsey Wrights scanner which costs around $35 a month, and as the free ProRealtime scans that I've set up pick up the vast majority anyway, so it's an extra expense that I don't think is necessary currently.

Another method that's very good at finding the early Stage 2A breakouts is to look for a cross above the weekly Ichimoku Cloud. Here's the code that I use in Prorealtime's ProScreener:

Code:
ignored, ignored, ignored, indicator1 = CALL Ichimoku[9, 26, 26, 52]
c1 = (close CROSSES OVER indicator1)

ignored, ignored, indicator2, ignored = CALL Ichimoku[9, 26, 26, 52]
c2 = (close CROSSES OVER indicator2)

SCREENER[c1 OR c2] ((close/DClose(1)-1)*100 AS "%Chg yest.")

And another screen you might find useful is a touch and then close above the 10 week MA, with a rising 30 week MA. As this mostly gives you pullbacks within Stage 2 to manually look through for the best candidates. here's the code:

Code:
indicator1 = Average[10](close)
c1 = (low CROSSES UNDER indicator1)

indicator3 = Average[30](close)
indicator4 = Average[30](close)
c2 = (indicator3 > indicator4[1])

indicator5 = Average[10](close)
c3 = (close > indicator5)

Condition1 = (Close[0]-Close[5]) / AverageTrueRange[200](close)

SCREENER[c1 AND c2 AND c3] (Condition1 AS "ATR change")

I hope that helps get you started.
