Can you please explain some of the reasons as to how you have determined these identifiers as signs of a momentum play?

  • Why Market Cap specifically in that range?
  • Why Price in that range? How does that correlate with Float under 50m?

What kind of time frame do you mean here with momentum play?

Do all of the boxes need to be checked in order for it to be feasible? If not, which ones carry the most weight and which ones are the most flexible?
