    Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for Monday (12/17)
    (Read this first post for the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge)


    [​IMG]

    Congrats to @emmett kelly the Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Winner for (12/14)!

    *Link to Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge Thread for (12/14)*

    On to the next! The Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for (12/17) starts at the opening bell on Monday, December 17th, 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 Monday, December 17th!

    Stockaholics wins the daily poll tally for Friday! 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

    Just some notable mentions in here-

    @Steven_Burt very nice call! :cool:

    [​IMG]

    @snuffalchewy - FWIW, the reason I did not close out your pick on Friday's contest is because I'm not really sure where you are getting "3.41" from, and where "11:04" is coming from with the time that you closed out at? As show in my screenshot above, the time of your post came at "3:56" eastern.

    ADIL was not trading at 3.41 at 3:56. It was trading at 3.80.

    Perhaps you are not clear with how closing picks works on these contests, but here it is as per the first post rules of these threads.

    Scroll down where I have highlighted in a red box below-

    [​IMG]

    You get the closing price at the time you are closing out. So, in other words, if you posting to close out a pick at 3:56pm eastern (which you did on Friday's thread), and ADIL for example is trading at 3.80 (which it was), then that's the price you get. Hope that makes sense. If not, let me know.

    BTW all, remember that picks need to be submitted via my Google Form in the very first post of these threads! I won't be posting those links separately on different posts any longer so hopefully everyone will be able to get into a habit of using the links on the first post of these threads to submit picks. ;)

    So hard to make a call for UP with so much damage done to the chart, and so hard to make a call for down so extended. Going for a dead cat on Monday.

    Market - UP
