What are your thoughts on using call long call options on the bullish picks instead of buying the stock? . Wouldn't the option allow you to leverage your $ ? Any thoughts?

I think I read you are using 401k money so that would make sense but I would be interested in how you think this system would apply to option plays.

Dear Chetron,

I have been interested in Marlyn's filter which you were kind enough to provide a while ago. For some reason I keep getting "debug" notifications. I didnt change anything, would you take a look see? Many thanks for all of your helpful post. You are a great help to all of us starting out.
