    Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Challenge for Tuesday (3/21)
    (Read this first post for the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge)


    [​IMG]

    Congrats to @Ken34 the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picks Winner for (3/20)!

    *Link to Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Challenge Thread for (3/20)*

    On to the next! The Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Challenge for (3/21) starts at the opening bell on Tuesday, March 21st, 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 Tuesday, March 21st. 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 Tuesday, March 21st!

    GLTA.

    Stockaholics wins the daily poll tally for today! Credit goes to the FLAT/DOWN 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 flat

    there's really nothing much doing here as of late ... just a lot of choppy range bound sideways action ... and i'm not really seeing much in the way of a catalyst to get us moving one direction or another either (at least in the very short-term) which admittedly kinda does suck lol ... truth be told i haven't really been following the market action closely much at all as of late, for the exception of running these challenge threads ... and i gotta be super honest here but i think this market right now is about the most boring i have seen it in my 12 years in this gig ... although i can't say that i'm the only one who is feeling this way ... unfortunately it seems like this could go on for a bit while longer though :confused: and it's been so long since we've had a -1% down day i forgot what a selloff looks like lol

    nvda - long

    I'm surprised today was only down -0.2%. Futures were down, and there were some thrusts down, then it chopped back up.

    Market DOWN

    Market flat

    BWEN long.... Again

    14 DMA is setting up to be a nice support level... And it appears to me the buy volume is still winning out over sell volume

    I took this little pull back as an opportunity to get in today at $6.10...... I think I do pretty good with my picks here, especially as a newby playing against all y'all pro's!...... But every time I actually BUY one of my picks, the market laughs at me and drops it like a one winged bird!........ Maybe I'll be the one laughing this time!

    Here is Tuesday's challenge spreadsheet in case I'm unable to get around to it later tomorrow-
    (I hope you guys can see the spreadsheet this time around! lol)
    [​IMG] <-- click there to view!

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

    Good luck to all of our participants in here for tomorrow! ;)

    @stock1234

    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 picks up until around midnight so don't think you are excluded from tomorrow's challenge if I haven't listed your name up yet. 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. ;)

    Also, just in case any of you missed my post updates for the tournament and league challenges from today here they were-

    Day #1 of the 2nd Round Tournament Update Link-
    https://www.stockaholics.net/thread...k-challenge-tournament.4293/page-4#post-48238 <-- click there to open!

    Day #1 of the League Challenge Update Link-

    I'm curious to hear everyone's first impressions of these 2 challenge formats. Do you guys like them? Or not so much? Thx again for all the feedback as always. GLTA tomorrow!

    That volatility play is looking enticing. I think VIX 10.8 is the floor.

    Based on purely charts, I'm also looking at NBEV and AMAG-short.
