    TAKE THE CHALLENGE!

    Pick a stock from $2.00 - $5.00 that trades no less than 100k shares daily volume that you think will go up in the next five days.

    Select an entry price (like a market order), the stock must trade at that price within the next 5 days for your pick to be activated.

    If the stock price gaps over or does not trade at that price during intraday swings you are not qualified.

    The challenge plays till fridays close where I will calculate who won and post it on the thread.

    The reward is yours to keep! The experience of fine tuning your ability to select a stock that is going to go higher. ( and that is cash in the bank for you) and of course bragging rights that you won..

    Rules

    1. stock priced between 2.00 - 5.00

    2. volume of no less than 100k daily

    3. entry price must be acheived during daily market 9:30 - 4:00 times (no pre market or after hour prices allowed)

    4. no cramer picks from friday's show

    5. one ticker per forum member

    6. a ticker can be used once per challenge - if you want to use the same ticker for next week you must call it first after Friday's market close (4:00 est)

    7. once an entry and ticker is selected and posted, there is no changing the entry or ticker.

    8. entries for next challenge opens at Friday's market close (4:00 pm EST) and closes at midnight Sunday (12:00 pm EST)

    we will start this week. you will have till sunday night at midnight to have your ticker and entry price posted. the stock price must trade at the price you pick during open market conditions ( no pre or after market prices will count) ( use it like a limit order)
    i see we got a sticky! ( thanks thierry) i need thierry to edit the rule page and input the bold text i just wrote.

    this is a great exercise, the fact that this is "emotion free" will change your mindset.

    i will make a rule sheet later that should be the sticky.

    post your picks here, you can throw in why you think it will go up if you want. we will check the line up each night until friday.

    alright! thats it. welcome aboard all. lets have fun :D

    i use scans all the time. here is one from an oversold stand point.

    i have found when doing these challenges it is a worth wile event to do a journal of what you pick and why.( lets you know what works or not)

    i will pick ( look) at 3.35. it will have to come in a bit.

    Excellent idea, jacob.

    If I could make a suggestion...or rather, a request, really...for those of you who are inclined to do so (it'd be tedious to make it a 'rule of the game', and should be entirely voluntary), feel free to post why you choose the entry points you do. For those of us who are new to trading, it'll help us both to better understand the market and to hone our own personal trading systems (which doubtlessly need it...I've learned thus far more or less when a stock is about to turn the corner, but as for picking specific entry points, well, I'm lousy at that.)

    Again, thanks for the thread, jacob. I'll be keeping an eye on it.

    I had a really hard time selecting. I have two stocks in mind, but one was already picked, CBB.

    My pick is:

    NAPS @ 3.50

    it really is a hard game to play. just imagine you have to pick a stock that has to move higher in 5 days, what a skill builder. surprised you didn't pick (eght) it has got some sympothy for the cbb deal.

    surprisingly pie, alot of these stocks that were chosen came up on my sf bullish filter- stocks under 5..
