    Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Challenge for Wednesday (1/11)
    (Read this first post for the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge)


    [​IMG]

    Congrats to @Cy McCaffrey the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picks Winner for (1/10)!

    *Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Challenge Thread for (1/10)*

    On to the next! The Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Challenge for (1/11) starts at the opening bell on Wednesday, January 11th, 2017.

    Important - Please read carefully: IF YOUR PICK IS OUT OF COMPLIANCE AFTER THE START OF THE CONTEST, YOUR POSITION WILL BE FORFEITED.

    *When you make your pick, please make sure there are empty spaces around them, so they come up in the thread search.

    Correct: AAPL - Long (Blank space after AAPL)
    Incorrect: AAPL- Long (No space after AAPL)
    • Pick ONE stock/ETF, either long, short, that trade on the U.S. Stock Exchange.
    • Predict where you think the stock/ETF will close for the day.
    • You cannot duplicate someone's exact play. For example, if someone picks AAPL - Long, you can only pick AAPL - Short as long as it is not taken yet. Use the "Search This Thread" link as it only takes a few seconds to see if the ticker has been mentioned.
    • Get your pick in BEFORE the opening bell on Wednesday, January 11th. I will provide all the opening prices as I have the spreadsheet set to auto look up the opens.
    • The stock/ETF must close at $2 minimum the day before the contest. No Indexes or pinks/OTCBB.
    • Once you pick something, that is it, it is yours unless it is not a valid pick. This way someone doesn't pick a stock that others want, then at the last second change it.
    • You are allowed to pick one leveraged ETF. (These are the 2x/3x ETF's)
    • Optional - You may post a rationale (either technical or fundamental) for your pick, but it is not required.
    • You may choose to close out your pick at any time during the trading day. Please post your own closing price. We will be using the closing price of the 1 minute bar of the time stamp of your post here on Stockaholics!
    Once again, it is your responsibility to check that your pick is not a duplicate. The "Search This Thread" link I mentioned makes this as simple as it can be. If you choose to not check and should you duplicate someone's pick, it will not count!

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask, and if anyone sees someone else messing up, please correct them. Also, please look at your positions after I post the spreadsheets. I try to catch mistakes, in and out of my control, but need your help in making sure the information is accurate.

    Remember...the contest starts at the opening bell on Wednesday, January 11th!

    GLTA.

    Stockaholics wins the daily poll tally yet again today and extends its perfect 6 for 6 daily record opening with a 100% voting accuracy to start the year! Credit goes to the FLAT votes! :cool:


    Post your Vote!
    [​IMG]


    Notes/Guidelines:
    1) For purpose of the spreadsheet record flat is currently based on +/-0.25% or less. Of course, everyone can define flat any way they choose.
    2) Up, Flat, or Down must be clearly specified in a post in order to be listed in the spreadsheet, otherwise it'll be assumed that post was not intended to be a part of the official record.
    3) It's OK to post your vote if you missed the deadline after the poll has expired and if the market has not really moved that much or especially if your late vote is opposite or flat of the S&P futures ATM. It will be up to my discretion and obviously, the more active voters will be given more leeway.
    4) Starting and ending points based on official daily ending close of the market.
    5) The primary goal of this game is to track our performance. You can consider it a contest or as a personal critiquing tool to better ones performance

    A special commendation continues to go out to our daily poll consecutive leader with a perfect 6 in a row to start 2017 thus far!-

    Also worth noting that @anotherdevilsadvocate is perfect for the year as well! Albeit he did not get a chance to vote on our very first daily poll of 2017. Still worthy of some serious recognition IMO.

    I hope you're right about this. I really need it to stay under $25 for the rest of this week and next, would be ideal.

    I'm going with SPX long and SLV - Long

    although I know it says midnight but on those nights where the futures are relatively flat like tonight I'll still accept votes ... and especially since you are on this incredibly amazing run to start this year! if you can get your vote in before like 6am or thereabouts I'll still take it! the poll is actually still technically open and accepting votes. and I'm really interested to see where this perfect run goes haha. hope you see this by then!
