Thanks for noticing us. At http://caps.fool.com, take a look at the CAPS Help section (has an audio interview with me included) to familiarize yourself more with Motley Fool CAPS. See you out there!

No problem, Dave. Been a long time since we bounced around the Rule Breaker boards together.

I've read the help section, and I understand the mechanics of how this is intended to operate.

What I don't understand is the basis for the exercise. You're setting a market to beat a market - your information aggregator against the massive, even world-wide, information aggregator which is the United States equity market. The information known to your population is, almost by definition, no greater than that available to the markets themselves.

So why set up a market to aggregate information, when one already exists?
