My dumbest idea yet.



September 30, 2010 – Comments (3)

Would it short circuit if i opened a caps account named 4Q2010 and made the password 4Q2010 and let everybody just run 2 picks each out of it?

It would be sort of a poll. No rules, Just which way do you think the market will turn. 7 day limit would only let fools turn the picks a few times in 90 days anyway.

Or could share the password for a month, then change it for a month (to get a valid Q4 poll result), then change it back for the last month of the quarter so fools can exit positions?

It's probably a dumb idea that would get 'spammed', but it would take very little to set it up, and might be good for a laugh?

What would happen when multiple people want to have the same pick?  I think this would end up with some sort of fantasy-football-draft scenario.

 I think its a good idea so far as it isolates certain groups of people with certain picks from a certain timeframe, but it is just too open for tampering.  Someone can easily change another person's pick, or just hijack the entire account.

It may be worth mentioning directly to TMF staff to try setting up pools for people to group their picks into - like they do for top picks, but more temporary.

Maybe you should try using this format for allstarportfolio.  Might rekindle interest.

I'm still interested in the ASP, but I still don't want to sell my 2 picks.
