    Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for Friday (1/4)
    (Read this first post for the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge)


    [​IMG]

    Congrats to @rStock the Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Winner for (1/3)!

    *Link to Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge Thread for (1/3)*

    On to the next! The Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for (1/4) starts at the opening bell on Friday, January 4th, 2019.

    If you want to be eligible to participate in the daily challenge here is what you need to do (REQUIRED!):
    • 1.) Post 1 ticker (ex. AAPL = Apple)
    • 2.) Choose either Long or Short (Obviously LONG = if you think it will go up ... or SHORT = if you think it will go down)
    • 3.) Your pick MUST be at least $2 at the previous day's closing price at the bare minimum! If you pick something that is under $2 then your pick will not count, and you will not be entered into the daily stock picking challenge!
    Challenge Rules (PLEASE READ THESE AND FOLLOW THEM!):
    • 1.) No OTC or IPOs.
    • 2.) No Futures, Forex, Indexes stuff like that... Equities ONLY that trade on the U.S. Stock Exchange!
    • 3.) If you don't post both the ticker AND the direction (LONG/SHORT) you won't be added to the list of contestants for the daily stock picking challenge!
    • 4.) You cannot duplicate someone's exact pick!
    • 5.) Picks absolutely MUST be posted in here before 4AM eastern time the day of the contest!
    • 6.) You are NOT allowed to pick any leveraged ETFs/ETNs (2x/3x). If you choose one, it will not count. If incorrect picks go un-noticed, you risk your position being forfeited!
    • 7.) RATIONALE - You may post up a rationale (either technical or fundamental) for your pick but it is not required. This is optional for everyone. Members who do post up a rationale for their pick will receive an additional 2 points in the members leaderboard.
    • 8.) Please DO NOT EDIT your original post with your pick! If you absolutely must choose another pick, please use a separate post and state that you are changing your original pick to something else!
    • 9.) 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 intraday 1 minute closing price using the time stamp of your post on Stockaholics for when you closed out your pick. You will need to state the price & the time of when you closed out. I will be confirming that your closing price is correct by looking at the 1 min. intraday chart. If it is not correct, I will then post up your correct price and input that into the live spreadsheet.
    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, January 4th!

    Stockaholics wins the daily poll tally on Thursday! Credit goes to the DOWN votes! :cool:


    Post your Vote!
    [​IMG]


    Notes/Guidelines:
    1) For purpose of the spreadsheet record flat is currently based on +/-0.15% 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

    BTW, I think it is worth noting in here that @Lico Inv is actually on a 8 in a row daily poll winning streak, if you count the 6 in a row that he finished with in 2018. Not too bad at all! Nice work @Lico Inv! :cool:

    Cross-posting from the Portfolio Challenge thread.

    Hey all, I wasn't quite sure where to post this that would get y'alls attention, but I just wanted to quickly bring to everyone's attention a new Stockaholics watch list idea that I have been working on for the past several weeks. I've been using the Google Forms as a way to get members picks automatically input into my spreadsheet.

    Please see this thread here for full the details-
    So, I went ahead and created several individual forms for a couple of you guys who are also in this daily challenge.

    Members can have up to 15 stocks on their watch lists.

    The nice thing about this is that the form can be edited at any time. So, whenever someone needs to either add or remove a stock from their watch list, that can be done very easily.

    Anyway, here are the individual form button links I set up for a couple of you guys so far, I'll add more to this later today-

    @bronk

    [​IMG] <-- click there to submit your watch list!

    @rStock

    [​IMG] <-- click there to submit your watch list!

    @Steven_Burt

    [​IMG] <-- click there to submit your watch list!

    @anotherdevilsadvocate

    [​IMG] <-- click there to submit your watch list!

    @Lico Inv

    [​IMG] <-- click there to submit your watch list!

    @snuffalchewy

    [​IMG] <-- click there to submit your watch list!

    And here I have the main spreadsheet, with all the individual sheets, as well as the master sheet.

    [​IMG] <-- click there to view!

    I really think this watch list idea is a nice idea for the community, and I would just hate to see it go by the wayside again like the last attempt this past summer.

    If there is anything that you guys think we could either add or change to make the experience more enjoyable, and meaningful, etc. for everyone, please do let me know.

    I'm trying very hard to get that thread jump started if you will, and hoping it will be used a lot, just like these competition threads.

    I'll try to have additional member forms setup a little later today. Admittedly, creating those individual forms does a bit of time lol.

    Next up I have on the list is @snuffalchewy. Hope to have yours up on that thread soon.

    Anyway, let me know what you guys think of that idea. Much appreciate it. :)
