    Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for Friday (12/13)
    (Read this first post for the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge)


    [​IMG]

    Congrats to @rStock the Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Winner for (12/12)!

    *Link to Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge Thread for (12/12)*

    On to the next! The Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for (12/13) starts at the opening bell on Friday, December 13th, 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, December 13th!

    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.

    IMPORTANT NOTICE!

    Hey all! In case any of you happened to have missed my earlier post from today (here) or this one from last week, I have made a decision to cut short the daily contests for the remainder of this year. Which means this thread here will indeed be our final daily contest indefinitely.

    Right now my plan is to take the entire year off next year from running these contests (and that means all of them).

    Unfortunately, times are a changing. My day schedule, really ever since this past summer, has just been downright brutality for me, and it just does not allow me much of any free time to run these anymore. :(

    I barely get time to log in on the forums much anymore like I used to. I try really hard to get on here at least a few minutes during my lunch breaks, but if I'm being 100% completely honest with you guys, running these contests (especially this daily format) was getting to be a HUGE burden on me, especially these last couple of months.

    While a part of me is feeling a bit sad to see these contests go after having running them at the community here for so many years, I'll be 100% honest with y'all's -- but I am feeling extremely relieved, as this lifts an amazing load off my shoulders lol.

    I realize we may take a small hit to our regulars who check in on the forums daily for the sole purpose of playing on these threads. And for that I am soooo sorry. I really do hope you guys will continue to check in here everyday and contribute elsewhere on the forums. Seriously.

    I can't thank you all enough for participating on these contests throughout my 7+ years running these here. It's truly been an absolute blast. I had a ton of fun running them, and I hope you all did as well.

    Before I head off here I will just say this, while I am not planning to run any contests in 2020, it isn't actually set in stone. In other words -- if I somehow get that "itch" again, and I'm able to find some free time again, I could bring these back (or at least the more popular formats like the "weekly") like midyear or something?

    IDK right now, but it's just something that is possible. :p

    Whelp, let's go out with a bang on this daily contests shall we?

    Good luck to you guys on what will be our FINAL daily contest in 2019! :D

    Again thanks for everything Cy. I hope we will see the weekly or monthly contest again at some point in the future, daily seems to be too much work for you so even though I like it the most, I guess we should retire it permanently.

    So the weekly will end this week too or you will still run it for rest of the year?

    Hey all, I'll update this thread at year's end with a final recap of the daily contest in 2019.

    The daily competition, like the weekly T/A charting challenge will sunset for good this year.

    In other words, I am very likely not to bring this format back at any point in the future.

    EDIT: I can maybe throw up a quick update for now, but then put together the big update by early next year. :p

    Yeah just too much work for the daily. I would be excited to see the weekly and the monthly back at some point. Sounds like you are bringing the weekly back but I didn’t read everything that you posted very carefully yet. Anyway thank you so much :)
