    I have set up another trading simulator for October - 1st prize is $100, 2nd and 3rd prizes are trading books.

    If you already played in previous competitions, you already have an account and your can just continue trading, your portfolio will be set back to $100,000.

    If you are new to the simulator, you can join at anytime up to October 23. You must use the same username as you use here. This thread will be used to discuss the game and post updates on the standings.

    You start with $100,000 and you can trade stocks long or short. We are not trading options anymore, as they made the results swing wildly both ways. Whoever has the highest amount at the close of trading on October 31, 2006 wins.

    The trading simulator/contest is open only to registered members of this forum. (Registering is free!)

    Send me a private message and I will send you the link for your free sign up.

    The Investopedia simulator is still showing September portfolio results.
    When will it be reset for the October contest and trade orders accepted ?

    Anyone have any tips on how to get a limit sell order filled on a volatile stock? I keep getting killed due to the inability of the simulator to execute orders on a quick spike, do some of you just settle for taking the profit below where you are pretty sure the pps will run to, or is it just me?

    Well Thierry, I have no idea why this happens every month, but my portfoilio is still logged into the September simulator and there is no listing of any months madmoney games when I try to search for a game to join. I had to change my name last month just to get in. I guess I'll try the same if no one has any ideas on what's causing the problem.

    Same problem here this afternoon. It needs to be reset by the moderator. I guess this month will be shorter for us all after the reset.
    And all my picks are up huge today !! Just kidding, but hey, let's get on the ball here !

    The Investopedia programmers have been notified of the problem and I am waiting for a fix or a response - will post here when it happens. Sorry about this!

    The reason the game doesn't show when you search is because it is a private, premium, invitation only contest so it is not listed for the general public.

    Thanks for the quick response to the problem. I'm sure it will be corrected soon.
    Now that's what I call great customer service ! [​IMG]

    The latest check shows the simulator portfolios have balances reset to 100k, but still has us on September which has already ended, so no orders are being accepted at this time.
    We need to be reset and started on October's contest.

    Thanks for getting things smooth Thierry. Question though, I thought we could short? It says shorting is not aloud.
