Changing Hats So Fast My Head Is Spinning.

I guess accuracy plays a far bigger role in Caps Rankings than I realized.

It seems that just a "skosh" of a change in the percentage price of a Pick or the S&P, resulting in a "skosh" of a change in my accuracy ratings can cause a neck wrenching change in my Ranking.

I have worn four different hats in the past 3 days, but have had relatively little change in my Score.

I guess if I had realized this when I first started making picks, and was more careful about closing out positions, I could have had one very colorful hat and kept it for a long time.

Hey, the Ranking is just a game.

What I am really interested in is making money, and if possible, helping others have the opportunity to do so too.

I guess I need to take "screen shots", to comfort me during "market corrections", when I go back down to those single colored ones that are not as flattering.

I guess I can take comfort in the fact that I'm not wearing a beannie, at least not yet. 

Just for the record, in case you missed it (or ignored it because you weren't the least bit interested), I am in with real money, in the real world on all of my picks.

Hope eveyone has a nice day and that your style of investing pays off for you in the real world.

I teach Special Education Resource Math, as well as Inclusion Math in General Ed. classes. Resource classes are all Learning Disabled Special Needs students. The Inclusion classes are a mixture of Special Needs students and General Education students. I work with both in those classes.

I have been teaching for 15 years.

This is my 4th career.

I was in banking, oil and gas, and real estate investment and development.

I was semi-retired, but my best friend, who was the Superintendent of a district in San Antonio, Tx, lured me into it. He and his wife took in Special Needs kids, and after watching me interact with them, he told me I needed to do it full time. 

I am an old Geezer, but choose to still work because the kinds help keep my mind active.

I teach in middle school, mostly 6th graders, but some 7th graders.

At the end of the day the pretend hats are no where near as exciting as real money ;-)
