    Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Challenge for Friday (5/19)
    (Read this first post for the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge)


    [​IMG]

    Congrats to @Ryan526 the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picks Winner for (5/18)!

    *Link to Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Challenge Thread for (5/18)*

    On to the next! The Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Challenge for (5/19) starts at the opening bell on Friday, May 19th, 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.
    • 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 Friday, May 19th. 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 challenge. 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. Please do not edit your posts with your pick. If you need to change your pick and/or the direction, just use two separate posts instead of editing your first.
    • 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 intraday chart with the time stamp of your post here on Stockaholics to get your official intraday closing prices!
    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 challenge starts at the opening bell on Friday, May 19th!

    No daily poll tally for Stockaholics on Thursday. Credit goes to the UP 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

    Market back up

    CARA long

    5 minute chart

    image.jpeg

    1)... Supply and Demand step into the ring

    2)... Supply swings first with a wild left hook... But it's BLOCKED!

    3)... Demand counters with a strait right cross, sending Supply stumbling across the ring

    4)... But Supply comes back with a left, then a right!

    5)... Demand is in trouble!.. His knees are looking shaky!

    6)... BUT WAIT!.. Demand throws a nasty upper cut and clobbers Supply!!!

    7)... Supply is down!.. And he doesn't look to be getting up!!!

    8)... There the count.. And the bell!!!... Demand wins!!!

    Ok, so that's not exactly how it works.. But it's close (at least in my head)

    Looks like enough absorption in this range to support a move to $18... That is, unless Supply comes back tomorrow with a bunch of friends looking for revenge

    Market FLAT, I guess. Mostly here to vote for

    CPB - short
    Been in a downtrend (below 200 ma but hanging around it. Just die already), could not crack 58 this week which is a low volume node this quarter.

    Haha that was amusing @Jrich! Loved it. Thanks for that. :D

    Meanwhile a pretty nice recovery for the daily challenge here even despite all the site issues we've gone through this week! In fact get this but we could even be challenging a record high on participation here. Another 3 participants would do it. Pretty amazing. Admittedly I was kind of fearing for the worst earlier this week when we had that day long outage. Very nice bounce back here. Big time thx to all who participate here daily. You guys seriously rock. :cool:

    Here is Friday's daily challenge spreadsheet in case I'm unable to get around to it later tomorrow-
    [​IMG] <-- click there to view!

    NOTE: *Ignore the current "opening prices" as those will automatically correct to tomorrow's opening prices after 9:30am eastern time.*

    Good luck to all of our participants in here for tomorrow! :cool:

    NOTE: I am just posting up tomorrow's spreadsheet a little earlier than usual in here as I have a pretty busy day ahead of me for tomorrow. I will continue adding members picks up until around 6am eastern time Friday morning so don't think you are excluded from tomorrow's challenge if I haven't listed your name up right now. I just wanted to get this spreadsheet posted in here and out of the way so I don't have to worry about getting it up at a later time tomorrow. ;)

    Got another one I'll throw out

    15-minute chart shows AAN has been getting big volume around 34.95. There's a low volume node at 34.76, hence when you see price go below 34.95 in the chart, volume has been drying up. And the lows after the 3 circled points are getting higher.

    Whoops! Actually 11 participants would tie our all-time high. But 12 would indeed break it. :D

    Still very impressive at 10 given all the issues we've experienced with the forum/server this week!

    BTW, I think it's worth posting this in here as well. I usually just have members click the button to view the leaderboards. But, we've got a pretty tight race going in the daily poll leaderboard for this month! :eek:

    Just 1 point separates @Dre4 and @stock1234 as of right now~

    [​IMG]

    Still a long ways to go in the month, but that 7 in a row win streak you're currently on @stock1234 has been pretty doggone impressive! It's worth noting that 10 in a row is the all-time daily poll record winning streak! GL @stock1234 :D
