Suggestion re: scoring system
I made a previous post about the problem with the scoring system encouraging people to keep losing picks open since they attempt to keep their accuracy high. http://caps.fool.com/Blogs/ViewPost.aspx?bpid=167106&t=01008169896868001586. It generated some useful discussion from some of the top players.
I think that I've come across a fair system for preventing the "gaming" which occurs.
1 accuracy point should be earned (lost) for each stock that is up (down) by 5% or more.
This is the current system
We should keep this in place and add the following:
- bonus accuracy points for stocks that are up (down) 10%, 25%, 50%, 100%
