Yes, by clicking on the history was how I saw that DieWurst was heading the the lead before end of trading yesterday.

Nice!

That's like batting 1.000 after the first game of the baseball season.

Yeah, and I notice "S & P 500 Comparison" at the bottom of the board. I don't remember seeing that before. I wonder if they're fixing up the site.

Stock Contest Status for "Beat Boho"

Nah, I probably I just forgot about it. The 2016 poll is still there.

I think that "S & P 500 Comparison" at the bottom is new. Oh well, I really don't look at the old contest anymore and stick with this one since any results of the old is pretty much not reliable from what we found.

If I remember my login information I'll log in to see if there's a response to my complaint. Hopefully they fixed the bug.

Nothing like a Dow drop of 250+ points to jostle the rankings a bit. If the market remains down like that rest of day, looks like there will be some rank position changes come morning .

I expect I'll still be in last place, losing ~5% today with that portfolio I think.

I just got the bull award and it looks like I'll be #1 tomorrow. I apparently picked weird counter-market stock without trying.

Award Earned!

Requirement: Bullish is Wall Street slang for optimism. An asset is believed to increase in value. To earn this award, you must buy enough stock in your portfolio, so that the value of the (long) stock portfolio exceeds than 75% of your current account value.

Nice. Zigging while the rest are zagging.

The dow today going down 372.82 pts is a good thing. At least from a contest perspective. Some ups and downs in the contest to see how we navigate .

This is a good buying opportunity. Wish I had some cash left in my portfolio to take advantage.

Yeah, by sitting and doing nothing, I only lost about $2700 and leapfrogged from 11th to 5th place in 24 hours .

Hmm, I just noticed I used Fermion1 instead of Fermion. Maybe I should restart?

Looks like a change in the leader board for the top spot by morning.

Lawrencewendall in the lead by a bit over Boho.

Could have sworn when I clicked earlier the numbers were reversed .
I stand corrected. But looks like Lawrencewendall is nipping at your heels.
