My triple screens layers (by Alexander Elder)

In the book The New Trading for a Living,  Alexander Elder describes an useful and mechanic way to analyze and filter opportunities for investing: the triple screen layers.

The 3 layers have a main purpose these are:

  • Top screen                 = censorship purpose.
  • Intermediate screen   = determine if there is an opportunity
  • Bottom screen           = refine the short

What do I check on each screen?
