    Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for Wednesday (1/2)
    (Read this first post for the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge)


    [​IMG]

    Congrats to @rStock the Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Winner for (12/31)!

    *Link to Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge Thread for (12/31)*

    On to the next! The Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for (1/2) starts at the opening bell on Wednesday, January 2nd, 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 Wednesday, January 2nd!

    Stockaholics wins the daily poll tally on Monday! 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

    Holy shit! What a finish for the leaderboards this month! Not sure if we've ever had a finish quite like that. @rStock rallies back to take the daily stock picking leaderboard for December by just 1 POINT! :eek:

    Not only that, but @rStock finishes the year on a 5 month winning streak. WoW!

    I will probably have an overall yearly recap of this daily challenge on a new thread. But, it is worth noting that @rStock did win the overall daily stock picking leaderboard for the full year winning it 5 times in 2018! Nicely done. :cool:

    Meanwhile, some worthy mentions also goes out to @stock1234 over on the daily market direction voting poll leaderboard. He won that for a 6th time in 2018! Awesome.

    Whelp, that that is a wrap to the 2018 daily challenge! Thanks for playing y'alls!

    Let's do this all over again in 2019 shall we? :p

    Market - down as institutions are back at it.
    BZUN - Long. Expecting a small move based on some TA tomorrow. Liking $30, possibly even pushing $31.

    What made you pick MRUS? I've never heard of it and checking it out now. This thing has some of the lowest volume I've ever seen out of a $15 stock.
