    Stockaholics Mystery Chart Guessing Game

    I'm bringing back these mystery chart contests from the dead ... you might recall that we used to run this on old HSM

    Basically for those of you who have never seen this challenge, or don't know exactly what type of challenge this is...

    Here is a brief description of just what this is here-
    • 1) I will post a chart ... it can be anything (stocks/etfs, indices, futures, forex, etc...)
    • 2) I will hide the price axis on the right side of the charts.
    • 3) I will hide the time axis on the bottom of the charts as well (if this is far too challenging and futile at any point, let me know and I will just go ahead and make this visible)
    • 4) As far as stocks go - I will only be posting ones that are over $5 with a market cap of over 1b
    • 5) Each member will have up to 3 guesses to get the chart correct, however after the 1st failed attempt that member will have to wait at least 1 hour until they can post their next guess (I will be using Stockaholics' post timestamps to monitor this...)
    • 6) Whoever can correctly guess the chart will have bragging rights for that trading week!
    • 7) If a member can correctly guess the chart also gets exclusive rights to pick out the next chart for following week's challenge (you would need to PM me your chart/ticker symbol so that I can have it posted for next week's pick!)
    • 8) I will only be conducting these contests once per week (preferably on the weekends)
    • 9) I will only be using 1-year daily charts for all mystery charts, unless otherwise stated!
    • 10) The member who wins the mystery chart for the current week, obviously cannot participate in the following week's chart due to the fact that they will be picking out the next chart!
    • 11) The member who wins the mystery chart for the current week, will have until the following Friday to submit the chart of their choice, as well as up to 3 hints/clues that can be used for the next week's mystery chart challenge.
    • 12) In the case of a no-winner week where no one was able to correctly guess the mystery chart for that particular week, the previous week's winner (chart picker) will once again have the rights to pick out the mystery chart for the following week again!
    If anyone has any questions about how this contest works, feel free to post them up in this thread!

    I will come up with a mystery chart so we can get this thing rolling soon! Stay tuned!:)

    so here we go, i'll make this weekend's mystery chart an easy one for you guys!

    i won't post up any clues/hints at the very start of this ... will give you guys some time to figure it out ... but if nothing by later today or tomorrow then i will reveal your first hint!

    @anotherdevilsadvocate whenever you can get a chance (you'll have up until this coming Friday) go ahead and PM me your mystery chart ticker as well as up to 3 hints/clues that you think we could use in the event Stockaholics stumbles across your next week's chart!

    Haven't done one of these in a really long time. Thought it'd be fun to bring this back at least one time this weekend.

    I'm starting this off on an extremely easy chart. I'd be absolutely shocked if no one was about to correctly nail this down before the end of the weekend.

    So, w/o getting into further ado here. What ticker does everyone think this stock chart is of?

    Winner of this chart will get exclusive rights to pick out the next ticker for our next weekend's mystery chart. As well as up to 3 clues of their choice.

    Haha. Looks like no guesses from anyone this weekend @heyimsnuffles (and I wasn't around this weekend to update this thread anyway lol).

    If you want to you can go ahead and just reveal your chart! :p

    I thought it was a good one too!
