    Stock Market Challenge

    Not sure if anyone will be interested, but I thought I would throw this out here anyway. Lets have a little stock market challenge. Starting now through September 4, 2007.

    Winner gets nothing but a pat on the back, unless someone wants to donate some junk (err prizes) You can join anytime you want (it's free), so it is never too late to start, but you will be at a bigger disadvantage the later you start (obviously)

    $30,000 to invest - invest wisely ... or not so wisely

    I can change some rules if we decide it is necessary... if we want it to run longer, how much we start with, etc. I kept the starting amount down a bit so you didn't start with like 100,000 or 500,000 etc and buy it all in google lol ... I did allow for private portfolios though incase no one wants to give their secrets away

    These stock market challenges totally miss out on 90% of the game- investor psychology... but it will still be fun to watch what you guys come up with

    Yeah, well I have no real money to invest... so I must worry about how my fake investments will turn out Especially in a 3 month time frame to keep things interesting. I predict some good days... and probably some very very bad ones with my selections so far...

    On a side note, hopefully in a few years I will have a little chunk of change to throw into the market and maybe make something out of it... but until then I must tend to my fake shares.

    Yeah, I got nailed pretty good and was at work all day so I couldn't do much about it. I saw it going down before I went to work and knew it was going to be down all day... Maybe a little rebound tomorrow though

    I had a nice little rebound today, hopefully tomorrow brings much more... I am tired of bring up the rear.

    Also, anyone else feel free to join in. It is still pretty early and everyone has lost to start with...

    I keep dropping, but I am hoping for a big rebound. I will let it go a bit more and see if it can turn around before I go for some drastic changes.
