    Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for Friday (11/30)
    (Read this first post for the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge)


    [​IMG]

    Congrats to @Lico Inv the Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Winner for (11/29)!

    *Link to Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge Thread for (11/29)*

    On to the next! The Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for (11/30) starts at the opening bell on Friday, November 30th, 2018.

    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, November 30th!

    GLTA.

    No daily poll tally for Stockaholics 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

    OK, so as was mentioned here, I am going to be using a drop down menu for usernames for this contest.

    This way you guys don't have to constantly write down your usernames for each new daily contest form.

    First, I will have you guys checking the Google Sheet before you fill out the form, so you know what picks have already been taken.

    [​IMG] <-- click there to view!

    Next, once you have taken a quick look at the sheet, then it's onto the form where you can make your pick for Friday!

    [​IMG] <-- click there to submit your daily pick for Friday!

    So, you're just simply submitting your pick via the Google Form link above, and then also posting it on this thread here as well. Eventually, once I've gotten the hang of doing this consistently, I won't even ask you guys to post it on the thread anymore, and would just have you guys only posting your market direction vote.

    Thank you all once again for helping test run this new format this week and a HUGE thanks goes out to @Three Eyes for all these awesome ideas for making these contests just a little more manageable to run. :D

    I think we're getting awfully close to making this our new way of doing these contests! :cool:

    REMINDER FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS! Please be sure to read Post #2 of this thread before posting your pick in here. We are continuing to test run a brand new format for entering picks for these daily stock picking competitions. The newest changes for this contest will be that you no longer have to type out your usernames in the form! It now comes as a drop down menu. :D

    NOTE FOR ANY NEW PARTICIPANTS! So you don't see your username in the drop down box? No problem! You can still participate (and it's actually very much encouraged if you do! :p). It is just asked that you post to this thread letting me know that you are new and would like to participate. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of time on this evening and need to run, but I'm hoping to eventually add a new field in that Google Form for any new members looking to join the contests. ;)

    heads up fellas, but it appears google finance data feed is down this AM.

    not sure when it will be back up, but the spreadsheet is obviously not going to be working until their data feed is back up...

    did you read my post #18 here?

    google finance data feed is down this morning.

    check out the google finance page. nothing is updating. all quotes are down this morning.

    i hope this gets resolved soon, but honestly idk...

    i'm going to see if i can use a temporary data feed until google finance is back up, maybe from IEX.

    i don't have a lot of time on this morning though. :(
