    (Read this first post for the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge)

    Congrats to @rStock the Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Winner for (3/15)!

    *Link to Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge Thread for (3/15)*

    On to the next! The Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for (3/18) starts at the opening bell on Monday, March 18th, 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 Monday, March 18th!

    Stockaholics wins the daily poll tally on Friday! Credit goes to the UP 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

    Market up I reckon. Probably want the first daily candle of the 1st day of 2nd quarter futures to start off green. Last day of first quarter futures finished last Friday and we saw how that finished.

    hey all,

    my apologies if i'm not quick to updating prices for those of you who close out picks during the day.

    as we are heading into the spring season here, my morning and day schedule will be changing quite dramatically, and unfortunately i won't have much time to login during the day like i have for much of the fall and winter seasons. sorry about that. :(

    i will have to monitor this over the course of the next couple of weeks to see how bad things gets for me...i'm still hopeful i can continue running these competitions (especially these dailies) for you guys at the very least. but, it's possible they won't get updated right after the market closes every day like i've been doing for the past several years now. we'll have to see.

    if things get really hectic for me, i may have to ask for some help from you guys running this if anyone would be interested to volunteer. such as maybe making new threads, or even helping with record keeping of my spreadsheets. :)

    i'd really hate to have to stop running this due to my busy life schedule.

    i think you guys would agree with me (or at least for those of you who participate on these competitions regularly) that this is pretty fun to keep an eye on during the trading day.

    in addition, these threads help keep members coming back to the forums regularly which is honestly what my primary goal has always been with these contests on the forums here.

    i fear if something were to happen like if these were to abruptly discontinue or what have you, it might actually kill forum activity, at least some of it anyway.

    we have quite a few "lurkers" out there who check in on these threads during the day too, so it's not just those who are participating. :)

    oh and speaking of participation, holy cow have we been doing great on an average this year!

    i could be wrong, and i would definitely have to check this out, but i am almost sure that this year has done the best as far as average participants for the contests...and i mean for all of our different formats! :D

    we're averaging like 9-10 participants per contest which is so awesome to see.

    thanks to all of you who participate and have been participating over the years here.

    you guys rock. :cool:

    Thanks for your hard work here Cy :) Hopefully you can continue to run these contest but I can understand if you want to stop it for awhile until you feel like you have a little more free time again. It is ok if you don’t do update right after the close :)
