Hmmm, CAPS thinks the S&P dropped 9% today instead of going up 8.5 points!
Usually the CAPS system magically syncs up at 5PM and puts out a report for the day that is pretty accurate. It's amazing that I still see some incorrect points showing for a few equities some days all the way up until 4:55 PM, but magically all is right, (with the exception of maybe an equity here or there that had a funkly split/dividend that needs manually corrected), by 5PM.
Today, I watched the System start scoring the S&P as being down about 9% on the day. Man that wrecks havoc with the points system. I'm up over 1,000 points, up over a percent, and DOWN in the overall standings. It must mean there's some players with massive number of ETF's in their profiles just lurking.
I'm sure CAPs will figure this one out for another volitile trading day tomorrow, but volitility in the CAPS system is sure confusing when you get ready to log off for the day. I thought maybe the market had crashed and I was sleeping!
Attaboys to the CAPS team for keeping this forum stable and growing......most of the time!!!!
