I am rooting for you. I thought you were french, first, with this name, not german. You need to rename yourself into something like WallStreetInsider. After all, SEC is not that bright, you know, and it is overworked too.

Oh! Vanity!

You know that since you started and I said you will top the pack but watch out.. Stay humble or the market will do it for you. Always does.

Good Luck and great job (so far).

I know. The good thing is that I use my own posts as counter-indicators (split personality must be good for something ...). So in reaction to my "bullish"/"not that humble" posts I have ended quite a few picks lately.

And I don't believe the hype myself (I think).

Thanks for the best wishes!

Too bad you could not score as many points as I did today.

That tells me that you are beatable.

go get 'em Hans!

Number 1 & 2 seem easily achievable for you.Although the SEC is pretty dumb , I'm not sure they'd even listen if you directly told them you did.

Number 3 well if anybody on CAPS could do it would be you or Anchak. That's a pretty tall order to say the least.

 you know in reference to goal #4 your command of English is much better than most of native speakers that you might be better off using it more poorly. That was my first tipoff that you weren't a native speaker, you use English very precisely. :)Another tipoff is like other non-natives you seem to have a unique cadence to some of your sentences.

Number 3 will be hardest and Mr. Simons is more likely to do his search here (so far just 1 paper from me).

Those sentences still would not get you very far in Germany.

Actually there is no translation for "Go for ...". "am besten" means "best" but not "the best". "Seien Sie am besten still" means "It would be best for you to keep quiet" (the polite version of "shut up!")

"Zahl 1" as opposed to "Nummer 1" is the actual number (I mean the 1 itself, like the 13 in "I do not like the 13, the number 13"). Translations can be tricky.

You should add "upper 80% accuracy" to your list of goals and hit Top Fool. :)

 Yeah translation is indeed tricky. I speak Spanish and can attest this is true especially when it comes to sayings/idioms.I gave it a try to be original.

"upper 80% accuracy" is not a goal of mine. I should really spend my time on improving my chances as to number 3.

I feel like I'm your little brother.  My score chart looks exactly like yours, except it's slightly smaller.

Good luck on your goals.  And if you make it to Renaissance and you need a good valuation guy, maybe you should consider giving the ole' Hun a job ;)

 

Funny how all of us have somewhat different CAPS goals.  I have never cared about the score leaders that much.  Despite ranking in the top 60 Fools, I only have 2 score leader positions.  I care more about my average pick score, because it's very easy to game accuracy points on here and having a high pick score suggests that one wasn't using that cheapo tactic all that aggressively.

Congratulations. You are now in the top 3. Great Strategy! Where do you see the next move, is it going to be corrective wave no or rally through the summer?

Do not follow the road to serfdom, rather chose the one to freedom. Do not mix them up, or let any one tell you otherwise.
