We’re trying out a new site (www.marketplayer.com), and the rules there work a bit differently. You can place limit and stop loss orders (good thing) but you can’t register once the game has begun (bad thing).
Since no one can register once the competition has begun, I have decided to shorten the time span. The competition will run from Tuesday, March 13, 2001 through Friday, April 13, 2001, giving us all those 2 days to concentrate on Tax Preperation.
You must join by Monday, March 12, 2001 to participate.
About as good as you’d expect on a site that hardly ever worked. Hopefully this new one will run better.
If that’s the case, and it runs right, I’ll smoke you and any of the other rubes out there who think they have a chance at beating me.
The way I see it, you’ll be cleaning my house for lunch money by the time this game is over. And you can start in my bathroom, the toilets been looking a little rank lately.
Seriously? Who knows how I’ll do. I’ll take what I’ve learned from the other competition and see where it takes me in this one. It’s all a learning experience for me- the competition just makes it fun.
The somewhat, sorta, kinda final results are in for the second challenge…pantom has graciously conceded the crown to the first place trader…and we are all gearing up for a SMOOTHER competition this time… LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!
[sub]What?..not 'til Tuesday?..really?..darn, I hate waiting…[/sub]
Looks like it worked out pretty well, Cnote, considering. But since you weren’t actually daytrading for the last week or two, and your portfolio took off, maybe it’s time to think about going long, huh?..[spooky little short lady]“Come into the light, Darryl-Ann.”[/spooky little short lady]
Uh oh, don’t put thinksnow in there cleaning the toilets…he’s learned some baaaaad tricks (the hard way…)
Also, sd, when I enter a figure of more than 50% of my buying power, I get the following: “Over maximum percent equity for stock.”.
Sounds like there’s a limit to how much of your portfolio can be allocated to a single stock (or am I reading this wrong?) I couldn’t find anything in the rules about it, except that their Top 20 competition has a limit of 33%. Any help for this situation? Or is it a limitation we are forced to accept?
Well…hmmm…it’ looks like I have a mission in life now. It is, of course, to crush you. Nay, I shall rend you as a cat tears a baby mouse. I will make a spectacle such that passers-by will cringe, women will avert their eyes and babies will cry out in anguish. Yes, you will rue the day you mocked me, Younger. Rue it, I tell you.
