Hi HermanPotter

Your CAPS picks look fine to me, keep up the good work. Your ranking of around 1500 out of 74000 is great.

Since accuracy is 1/3 of your CAPS rating, don't close any of your losing picks unless there is absolutely no chance of a positive score. Just think of them as "long term buy & hold".

The CAPS "game rules" are not the same as the real market. You must have greater than a +5 score on an ended pick to get a +accuracy. A negative score on an ended pick will be a permanent -accuracy. Don't make any picks in CAPS that will closely track the S&P500, this is what you are competing against.

At the top of this page you can hover over "CAPS Community", then select "Players", and then select "Accuracy" to sort the players to the 20 highest accuracy players. This list shows that you don't need a super high score to be in the top 99% of CAPS.
