Where can I learn the difference between using the CAPS and Watchlists? I just listed my first CAPS and wanted to also enter some ticker symbols in the watchlist. I'm not ready to choose outperform or underperform on the watchlist companies because I haven't had a chance to research them. But the watchlist asks you for over/underperform and time frame just like the CAPS does. So what's the difference between these two? Do you get graded on the CAPS but not the watchlists? Thanks for any help here.

Hey SeaShell. I just added a company to the My Favorites list and while it asked me if I own the company or not (Watch List), it did not ask me about under/over performing. It's been a while since I've played with CAPS, so I may not be following what you are doing. But whether you own or are watching a company, if you add it to your CAPS page, you are essentially adding your rating, which may be why you are receiving the prompt. But the My Favorites list is completely independent of CAPS.

Who notes there are a couple of CAPS boards where you might get more discussion of the game...
