    Stockaholics Weekly Stock Picking Contest for the Week of (2/11-2/15)
    (Read this first post for the Stockaholics Weekly Stock Picking Contest)


    [​IMG]

    Congrats to @stock1234 the Stockaholics Weekly Contest Winner for the Week of (2/4-2/8)!

    *Link to Stockaholics Weekly Stock Picking Contest Thread for the Week of (2/4-2/8)*

    On to the next! The Stockaholics Weekly Stock Picking Contest for the Week of (2/11-2/15) starts at the opening bell on Monday, February 11th, 2019.

    If you want to be eligible to participate in this week's contest here is what you need to do (REQUIRED!):

    • 1.) Post 2 tickers (ex. AAPL = Apple) but YOU MUST pick 2 not just 1 or else I will not add you to our list of contestants!
    • 2.) Choose either Long or Short for each ticker (Obviously LONG = if you think it will go up ... or SHORT = if you think it will go down this week)
    • 3.) Both of your picks MUST each be at least $2 from Friday'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 this week's contest!
    Contest 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 this week's stock picking contest!
    • 4.) You cannot duplicate someone's exact play! For example- If someone picks AAPL - Long and BAC - Long first then you may only pick AAPL - Short and BAC - Long or AAPL - Long and BAC - Short <-- you may only duplicate 1 pick but not BOTH! This is a first come, first serve basis here!
    • 5.) Picks absolutely MUST be posted in here before the 9:30AM eastern time cash market open on the first trading day of the week!
    • 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 both of your picks but they are not required. This is optional for everyone. Members who do post up a rationale for their picks will receive an additional 2 points in the members leaderboard.
    • 8.) Please DO NOT EDIT your original post with your picks! 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 one or both of your picks at any time during the trading week. PLEASE POST YOUR OWN CLOSING PRICE(S)! 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 which pick(s) you are closing out as well as 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 choose to close out after the trading day is finished (after the closing bell), you will then get the next day's opening price.
    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 contest starts at the opening bell on Monday, February 11th!

    Stockaholics wins the weekly poll tally this week! Credit goes to the FLAT/UP votes! :cool:


    Post your Vote!
    [​IMG]


    Notes/Guidelines:
    1) For purpose of the spreadsheet record flat is currently based on +/-0.50% 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) Because of the poll expiration at Sunday midnight GMT time zone, (Sunday 4pm PST / 7pm EST) I manually close the poll around 9pm - midnight in PST, or before I go to bed. You may notice the poll says to expire on Monday, but it does not. It will expire on Sunday the date that is in this post.4 pm PST / 7pm EST is just a bit too early and I want to give as much possible time for everyone to get a chance to vote.
    4) You may notice that some members have monthly and quarterly statistics in the spreadsheet. I add these based on at the start of the month or quarter taking into account past consistent voter-ship.
    5) 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.
    6) Starting and ending points based on official close of the market Friday.
    7) 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

    Notable mentions to Stockaholics as a voting majority. Nice 3 in a row weekly winning streak going right now, and only 1 wrong all year up to this point. Not too shabby at all. :cool:

    As some of you guys may know after reading these posts, Google Finance is experiencing major issues today, and is printing out incorrect data in its data feeds which is unfortunately affecting the Google Sheets.

    It's very possible that the final results from this week's comp was actually not accurate.

    Unfortunately, I just don't have the time to sit here and check up on each ticker to make sure everything is correct. That would take me forever!

    Please check the data in your spare time and if you guys find any errors with the data just post it in here and I'll see if I can correct them.

    This is very unfortunate, and will sadly impact things for us as far as running these contests going forward, unless things get corrected, which will hopefully be soon!

    Market - DOWN [SPX pretty firmly stopped at 200 DMA resistance last week and needs to consolidate between 50 DMA and 2650 before making another run.]

    although unfortunately i'm still see a few participants who did not submit the forms on those other links...was really hoping i wouldn't have to do any of it manually but looks like that wasn't the case.
