    (Read this first post for the Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge)


    [​IMG]

    Congrats to @anotherdevilsadvocate the Stockaholics Daily Stock Pick Winner for (11/30)!

    *Link to Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge Thread for (11/30)*

    On to the next! The Stockaholics Daily Stock Picking Challenge for (12/3) starts at the opening bell on Monday, December 3rd, 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 Monday, December 3rd!

    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

    Shout out to @rStock here! I don't believe anyone has ever taken the daily stock picking leaderboards for 4 consecutive months. That is really quite impressive! :eek:

    OK, so I'm going to try to get into a bit of a routine here with this new format of stock picking here at Stockaholics. This time what I'm going to have everyone do is to just submit the Google Form down below with your daily pick, and don't bother posting your pick on the thread, although you can still post it on the thread if you want to include rationale to get the extra points in the leaderboard. However, since there isn't a way to auto input daily market direction votes into my member's voting record spreadsheet, all I'll just ask you guys to do is post your market direction vote on this thread.

    NOTE: If there should be any issues with the submitting of the form, or you find any other issues, please do post that in this thread!

    First, I will have you guys checking the Google Sheet before you submit the form, so you all know what picks have already been taken.

    [​IMG] <-- click there to view!

    Next, once you have taken a quick look at the sheet, then it's onto the form where you can make your pick!

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

    i just want to collect some quick input from you guys on the new forms format. how you guys all feeling about this seeing as we've test run this for a couple of days now. are you all more or less cool with it? and are we slowly beginning to get used to this new format?

    good thing we have this whole month to test things out further, so by 2019 we should be all good to go.
