    Stockaholics wins the weekly poll tally this week! Credit goes to the DOWN votes! :cool:




    Notes/Guidelines:
    1) For purpose of the spreadsheet record flat is currently based on +/-0.50% 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) Because of the poll expiration at Sunday midnight GMT time zone, (Sunday 4pm PST / 7pm EST) I manually close the poll around 9pm - midnight in PST, or before I go to bed. You may notice the poll says to expire on Monday, but it does not. It will expire on Sunday the date that is in this post.
    4 pm PST / 7pm EST is just a bit too early and I want to give as much possible time for everyone to get a chance to vote.
    4) You may notice that some members have monthly and quarterly statistics in the spreadsheet. I add these based on at the start of the month or quarter taking into account past consistent voter-ship.
    5) 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.
    6) Starting and ending points based on official close of the market Friday.
    7) 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

    special commendation go out to our 12 posted down voters in this past week!-

    great calls in here fellas!

    we have @Ken34 with Stockaholics consecutive leader with 3 in a row! :cool:

    we have @stock1234 with Stockaholics current percentage leader for the year at a solid 64.29% accuracy with all votes counted for this year!

    also worth pointing out that @internationalstocks continues to kill it on the weekly poll! now improving to a staggering 90.91% accuracy for the year however with not all votes counted for all year ... but still c'mon man! that is worthy of some serious recognition in mind! wow!

    Down.
    I think we'll start the week off going down toward the 50-week ma ~2030, and the first day tends to determine the whole week.

    We didn't break the high of the previous week, but we didn't break its low either...so anything can happen! Nice tough/slight bounce off the Weekly 50 MA and the Daily 20 MA...so I want to say up, but it just still feels like we need to cool off...

    Down

    I voted down for the week. Dollar is weak which strengthened Asian currencies which is bad for Asian Indexes. Exports were bad as is.

    Voted DOWN due to poor close and it's time for the market to take a breather.

    Hope everything is fine with the family! I disabled email notifications but when I was getting them, it was only for watched threads (which was any theead I participated in) at the time.

    Actually I lied. I'm still getting emails when I get direct messages (When people start a conversation with me). I know I went through a lot of settings and disabled emails to come to me for most things though.
