Stock Picks Recap for 10/31/13

With each stock's recap, we will include a (with market support) or (without market support) tag, designating whether the trade triggered with or without market directional support at the time. Anything in the first five minutes will be considered WITHOUT market support because market direction cannot be determined that early. ETF calls do not require market support, and are thus either winners or losers.
From the report, SSYS triggered long (without market support) and didn't work, worked later with market support:

Here's a look at the US Dollar Index intraday with our market directional lines:

GBPUSD:
