GMK, the sole survivor of my first round of analysis,
GMK, as it turns out, broke above its 20-day price channel upon publishing earnings, and so comes under the special earnings confirmation rule.
Normally, confirmation means closing the next day beyond the breakout level. In the case of earnings, the symbol must do a double confirmation: Trade the next day, called "reset day", beyond the new 20-day price channel boundary produced by the breakout, and then confirm the day after by trading above the reset day breakout level.
I'm doing no further analysis today due to a scheduling conflict.
See "Friday's Prospects" for my first-round results.

No trader is ever 100 percent successful in his or her trades. Trading in the stock and option markets is risky and uncertain. Each trader must make trading decisions for his or her own account, and take responsibility for the consequences.
