To CAPS Management: Please add a trading volume minimum requirement!
I don't think I need to go into a big explanation on this one. The single best thing that could be done to prevent gaming of the caps system is to add a volume requirement to the pickability thresholds. This would eliminate a lot of .ob and .pk stock picks right away. If you're a caps gamer, you know that you can bank accuracy and points simply by continually picking very illiquid stocks -- If a stock has a bid/ask of $1.70/$1.85 and it trades 100 shares at $1.85, redthumb it and wait until it trades at the bid of $1.70 to close it. And then greenthumb it and wait until someone buys 100 shares at $1.85 to close it again. Lather, rinse, repeat. This has zero actual investing value with real money, course, so it should not be part of the caps game.
Come on, CAPS. This need is sooo obvious.
