There are two disadvantages to short-term trading. The more trades you have, the more your accuracy will likely hover around 50%, and that will be hard to overcome if you have lots of picks.

Also, anytime you close a position in between the 0 and +5 score range, that pick will not count towards your accuracy. However, on the flip side, closing any pick that's losing will count against you.

That being said, if you can beat the market short-term trading, then please, go for it! CAPS is all about testing out different strategies and methods.

Glad you're enjoying CAPS!
