MAIN WORKSHOP FEATURE (see complete list of  other topics below)
At this workshop you will learn to use a powerful ranking method called combinatorial ranking (combo rank).   The method takes advantage of knowing that each security (stock, ETF, index) in the HGSI database has over 400 different but related discrete items such as volume, price, ROE, earnings and more.  Choose technical and/or fundamental items to combine, and give each item a weight of importance.    The computed result is a unique customized value used to rank the securities.   W&B have developed effective investing/trading strategies for prospecting and tracking up/down rotation in the markets using combo ranking that they will share with the attendees.
