Was there an error this morning?

October 19, 2010 – Comments (3)

I checked my caps picks this morning, and saw that I was suddenly up hundreds of points.  I closed out two picks that were up more than 10 points.  When I checked to see what their final closing score was, I found that my total was down hundreds of points, about the same amount it had been up, and the two picks I had just closed were negative.

Was there a scoring error? 



PALG.OB scare this morning

I checked my caps this morning to see that my happy little +1900 score and 99.2 percentile had plummeted to -4000 and 30th percentile overnight.  The -6000 swing came from closing an underperform bet on ill-fated PALG.OB.  [more]



What a slow week

The markets seemed to be frozen this week.  The S&P is up 0.27% on the week, the DOW is up 0.4%, and NASDAQ is up 0.39%, all with very little wiggle between Monday morning and Friday afternoon.

If this keeps up, I'm going to have to work on work while I'm at work!



Can't break the 99th percentile barrier

I had some ups and downs in my early days on CAPS, but I'm holding a pretty good position now.  The problem is that I've spent the last several months floating between 98.85 and 98.95 percentile.  I can't seem to break into the 99s.  I want that new cap!  I'll keep clawing my way up;  I'll get there eventually.

I enjoy this game, and I do pretty well.  But the stocks that I'm too conservative to pick go onto my watchlist:  [more]
