    Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for Thursday (1/3)
    (Read this first post for the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge)


    [​IMG]

    Congrats to @bronk the Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Winner for (1/2)!

    *Link to Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge Thread for (1/2)*

    On to the next! The Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for (1/3) starts at the opening bell on Thursday, January 3rd, 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 Thursday, January 3rd!

    Stockaholics wins 1/2 daily poll tally on Wednesday. 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

    OK, so as you guys can see in my post above this, I am slightly changing things up a bit here on the poll results post. To save myself some time, I will no longer be posting up a daily screenshot of the current consecutive leader and will just ask that everyone to hit up the voting record spreadsheet button link if they want to view it.

    Also, another worthy shout out to @bronk (our newest member to the contest!) winning the very first Stockaholics daily stock pick in the new year! :D

    Always nice to get a fresh new leaderboard on the new year. Still a long ways to go, but @bronk is off to the early lead to kick off 2019! ;)

    Market - DOWN
    MDB - Short.
    MDB is a good company but I think it's extremely overvalued at it's price point. My TA is supporting that thesis and we look to at least be headed back to 70 sooner than we are 85. Short! I won't actually be entering this short without some particular movements tomorrow but given that we make these predictions that day before I'm going with it. Good luck everyone!

    hey @bronk just wanted to quickly confirm if your username was showing up in the drop down box on the form in the first post when selecting a name?

    it's the first time that i've actually added a name to the drop down since i created the form, so just making sure the edit was successful on my end. let me know for sure whenever you can get a chance. thx! :)

    They do Appear to be overvalued- yet they are a ''growth', forward-thinking co. I see much volatility and risk involved. Interesting co. Though .

    I see it now and I've added my pick. Thanks!

    Yes indeed. Also I appear to have already "won" my short position on MDB but it may have eaten up all of it's downward momentum by opening bell tomorrow HA.

    @rStock i did not see a market direction vote from you for today neither on the poll at the top or on this thread.

    maybe you forgot to post it, but if you want you can throw in your vote in this thread once you see this and i'll have it added to the spreadsheet.
