    Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for Wednesday (11/21)
    (Read this first post for the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge)


    [​IMG]

    Congrats to @emmett kelly the Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Winner for (11/20)!

    *Link to Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge Thread for (11/20)*

    On to the next! The Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for (11/21) starts at the opening bell on Wednesday, November 21st, 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 Wednesday, November 21st!

    GLTA.

    No daily poll tally for Stockaholics on Tuesday. 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

    BTW fellas, if you won't mind I am just going to be testing out a new automated idea via Google Forms which was first brought up to us by @Three Eyes over on the Possible Changes for 2019 thread.

    Anyway, if you guys can also post your picks via this Google Form here-

    [​IMG] <-- click there to submit your pick for tomorrrow!

    ...and then you can view your response in this spreadsheet here-

    [​IMG] <-- click there to view!

    We won't actually be using that spreadsheet for tomorrow's (Wednesday's) comp though, this is just simply going to act as a test as I'd like to try to get more than one response going in that Google form.

    So, you guys will all still be posting your daily picks to threads thread, in addition to that Google form above as well.

    Thanks guys for helping me test this new forms idea! ;)

    Actually fellas, disregard this completely.

    It looks like unfortunately there are some bugs with the way Google forms dumps data into an existing spreadsheet.

    I don't have an a lot of time to test things out this week as I need to get packing soon to head off on Thanksgiving vaca from tomorrow...so it'll have to wait until I get back. :p

    Here is Wednesday's daily challenge spreadsheet in case I'm unable to get around to it later tomorrow-
    [​IMG] <-- click there to view!

    NOTE: *Ignore the current "opening prices" as those will automatically correct to tomorrow's opening prices after 9:30am eastern time.*

    Good luck to all of our participants in here for tomorrow! :cool:

    @Steven_Burt
    @bigbear0083

    NOTE: I am just posting up tomorrow's spreadsheet a little earlier than usual in here as I have a pretty busy day ahead of me for tomorrow. I will continue adding members picks up until 4am eastern time tomorrow morning so don't think you are excluded from tomorrow's challenge if I haven't listed your name up right now. I just wanted to get this spreadsheet posted in here and out of the way so I don't have to worry about getting it up at a later time tomorrow. ;)

    Oh and BTW, before I head off here... As I have mentioned about an umpteenth amount of times this week. Since I will out tomorrow (and Friday) if anyone is closing out picks during the day tomorrow, they unfortunately will not get updated on the spreadsheet until I am back. You may still close out picks at any time tomorrow, but they obviously won't show up on the live sheet 'till I return.

    And for Friday, there will be no live sheet at all, but you may still post your picks and also close out at any time on Friday as well. Once I get back I will post the results from Wednesday and Friday.

    Have a happy and safe holiday everyone!

    Hi @grendel54, did you submit your pick via the “google form” button? If you did then I guess that’s why, that function isn’t working properly yet I believe. For now we all have to post our pick in the thread instead just like some of us did above of this post
