Wow!!! I've taken a beating this week and my rankings dropped from about 100th place to about 1800th place. It seems like most stocks that I've added lately are going red right away, but that's just the way it's going to be as long as I'm adding after about a 15% rally in the stock market in the last three months. Since I'm not comfortable with the shorting game like some of the very top players, I may have to wait for a large correction before I add any more stocks. Hopefully by that time I won't be the proud owner of the last place ranking...


The only thing I don't like about this game is that you can't double down when a stock you like takes a big hit, like Select Comfort today dropping over 15% (from 21 to 17)...OUCH! I'll just take comfort (pun intended) in being able to double down with my real money :)
