    [​IMG]

    Congrats to @anotherdevilsadvocate the Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Winner for (9/11)!

    *Link to Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge Thread for (9/11)*

    On to the next! The Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for (9/12) starts at the opening bell on Thursday, September 12th, 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, September 12th!

    Stockaholics wins the 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.

    • 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!
    Does this rule even take effect?

    @Lico Inv

    all of the picks for today's comp are looking fine on my end?

    but, i know there have been days where some picks go unchecked under that $2 minimum requirement.

    the honest truth here is, it's hard to program the google forms....like, i wish there was a way for me to set it so anyone who picks something that is sub $2 can't pick and would need to pick something else. same with duplicate picks. but alas, i have no idea how to program that. i'm not even sure if there is a way to do it.

    i often let those picks stay on though because for me participation is super important. we barely get enough participants on these things as it is...

    but, i fully understand your frustration with those sub $2 picks. i see them sometimes too, but by the time i get on the forums again it's too late for me to have the person re-pick, since i don't usually log back in here until about 6am the next morning. :(

    this is why i need everyone's help in calling out people who might have picked something that is not allowed per the contest rules.

    i honestly cannot go at this alone...

    my extremely busy life schedule unfortunately doesn't allow me for much free time nowadays anymore. so sorry about that.

    It is ok Cy, I will try to let you know if I find some sub $2 picks in the future although I can't guarantee that I can spot them every single time ;)

    Understood.
    I guess those individuals will simply adjust bump their picks to $3 or less- LOL.
    Realistically, less than one percent of people can successfully trade penny stocks over a long period of time.
    I hope that the individual who constantly picks no-name penny stocks doesn't translate those trades in real life, or the volatility will hit them like a steel wall.
    ,Thanks to those who legitimately pick reliable and known companies that actually have financial statements available, etc.

    (PS- that individual simply changed his/her pick)
