Longs will crush the shorts
In real life, and in this game, longs will crush the shorts.
Take for instance, my pick on IRE. I picked at 1.98, and it is now over 11.00. At this point, if it goes up just a few pennies, i make big points. I mean like 10 points for every 1%
Now if it goes up in five years, (yes i know it may bomb) to say.. .. it's glory days of 40% above the S/P from here, 80% above, the S/P (5 year chart) i will be making like 100 POINTS off ever 1% above the S/P !
There is of course the person to person skills, but in the end; shorting can only give so much. . .and long can give forever.
Fools like Ultralong, who really know how to play, and got in at the 'bottom', will have thousands of points in each pick eventually.
PS yes i know that you are all better than me at this game, so if you can make this more clear to me, please do.
