These are the stocks that are passing at least three of my five filters, for the week of October 5. It is an unusual week in that the markets, the Congress, and the Fed are all providing lots of entertainment.

Mr. Market is quite beside himself with a deep blue funk. Even an interest rate cut and the passing of the TARP brings no cheer.My advice? Run for the hills. Get out of long positions, or balance your longs with carefully chosen shorts. Get out of debt. Grow food for yourself. Yes, the market might still go up 400 points in the next day or three, but it will undoubtedly turn out to be a sucker's rally. Enjoy your trading this week. Remeber that cash is a position, too.
