    This thread is set up to determine if Aiki14 can outperform Marl (The Stock Picking Robot from DoublingStocks) within a 20 day period.

    Here's how it goes:

    • Marl will submit his pick via MaryKay1965 (before market open)
    • Aiki14 will submit his pick (before market open)
    • At the end of the day, a percentage gain or loss will be determined between the opening price and the closing price of each others stock picks.
    • A running tally will be kept.
    • After 20 days, the running tallies will determine the winner and the loser.

    Prize:

    If Marl wins, MaryKay1965 receives his choice of any book or video from the gift shop, courtesy of Aiki14.

    If Aiki14 wins, MaryKay1965 will leave this forum and never come back.

    Why not use the monthly simulation contest for this?
    MaryKay, you can use Marl's picks.
    Aiki, you can use your picks.
    Let's keep a running tally month by month!

    Sounds like a realistic contest to me.

    Net, I just don't have the time for that. This will be fun and manageable.

    I was browsing through the forum bookstore and there are some great things there.
    Marykay, I would recommend "Breakthrough strategies for predicting any market" By Jeffrey Greenblatt. It's a comprehensive text, very current, and he's a good source for information a trader can use. The downside for you is it's pretty advanced, and since it isn't written in crayon may be difficult for you, but it's $150 bucks and you could probably get $100 on Ebay if you don't drool on it. :beer:

    So, I am showing the closes as follows:

    UPFC 3.9474 or up 1.48% So $1000 invested would have returned $1014.80 (before commissions)

    BSRC .92 or up 16.46% So $1000 invested would have returned $1164.60 (before commissions)

    You're working off the close from yesterday.
    If I wanted a PR man it wouldn't be one named MaryKay, and frankly seeing your name and mine on the same page makes me a little sick.

    So you have to pick before the open each day, and you get the close, that day?? Or you're just doing this for one day?

    20 days, pick before open. Open versus close price. Apparently Marl does not provide a new pick every day so the previous days pick is used again. Same for me if I want to use the same pick.
