    Per an astute traders suggestion, I am starting a new thread to show the YTD standings in the weekly challenge. Through the contest ending 7-25-08, the following are the top players:

    Wallstreetsedge stays in 1st with 151%

    englishman26 stays in 2nd with 123.2%

    aiki14 stays in 3rd with 122.9%

    MrSer moves in 4th with the big win this week at 96%

    Thechartguru drops to 5th with 89%

    As I have stated before, this includes only those players that have played at least 10 of the past 20 weeks

    YTD through the contest ending 8-22-08

    wallstreetsedge remains in 1st with 174%

    englishman26 stays in 2nd with 136%

    thechartguru moves up 1 position to 3rd with 115%

    aiki14 drops 1 spot to 4th with 115%

    Florida moves back into the top 5 with 78%

    (Note: ZaNoob with the big win this week actually is at 109%, but has only played a total of 8 weeks so far, so does not qualify for the YTD standings. If the momentum that ZaNoob has keeps up, look out to all of you guys in the top 5. ZaNoob will qualify for the YTD standings with the next post in 2 weeks)

    By the way, if anyone is interested in their standing YTD, you can PM me

    everyone in the previous top 5 stayed in the same position over the past 2 weeks, just minor moves up in percentage totals for positions 3 through 5, a 5% move down in total YTD percentage for position 1, and position 2 stayed the same, as they did not play in the past 2 weeks,

    YTD standings, through week ending 9-5-08

    (includes only those that have played at least 10 of the past 20 weeks)

    1st, Wallstreetsedge with 165%

    2nd, englishman26 with 136%

    3rd, thechartguru with 130%

    4th, aiki14 with 121%

    and last, but certainly not least, Florida with 82%

    notable mentions go to,

    pinquin with 71%

    mrser with 69 %

    jmarkd59 with 53%

    Hey Florida, you gonna still keep updating this now that WSE has been banned? I think I nipped him on the last week he was able to participate so at least the results have a little validity, but I was really looking forward to seeing if I could beat him fair and square over a years results.
    After my miserable defeat at the hands (claws? pincers?) of a robot earlier this year, beating as good a trader as I have seen would have been very beneficial to my ego.

    WSE's status, or anyone's status has nothing to do with my planned updates. I will continue to update every other week. WSE will remain on the update until he drops out of the top 5, or until he does not meet the criteria of trading 10 out of the past 20 weeks.

    Thats wierd that he would get banned. I wonder if there was a conflict of interest or something with his site.

    YTD results through 10-3-08, those that have played at least 10 of the past 20 weeks:

    a new first place player,

    englishman26 in 1st with 538%

    wallstreetsedge drops to 2nd with 169%

    aiki14 drops down to 3rd with 160%

    bama nation stays in 4th with 118%

    florida stays in 5th with 108%

    A question was asked earlier in the week about the highest % 2nd place in any given week. That would be for this year aiki14's 61% for the week of 9-12, 2nd to none9999's 81% win for that week.

    Another question popped into my mind when I teased englishman26 about dropping the highest and lowest weeks for each player when computing the YTD standings. If we were to do that, the YTD results would be:

    englishman26 in 1st with 160%

    aiki14 in 2nd with 124%

    wallstreetsedge with 120%

    florida with 116%

    pinquin with 51%


    (wayyyy to much time on my hands this morning)
