    Me on the VMT Thread when making the pick: "Hopefully if there is a pull back then it happens today/tomorrow, leaving the SP to tick up next month!"

    Me checking in on the first trading day of Dec:

    I've got a bid on Z1p, hoping it drops down near SPP price.

    Someone had ZIP not Z1P
    Ziptel.
    Seems to have been overlooked...?
    Noticed it missing as it gets the wooden spoon prize for today... -23% :D Puts me third last, not second last.:roflmao:

    It had a pretty good run earlier in the year, I am guessing from a purely symbiotic dependency on Zip Pay and monkeys with investor badges.

    Both Z1P and ZIP were chosen but the entrant who selected ZIP has not yet posted in the ZIP thread as per the competition rules and so has not yet been added to the competition.

    Very thorough, thanks for the explanation.
    However, that puts me second last again...o_O
    That reminds me, is there a 2020 tipping comp/ thread yet?
    Cheers

    Me too!
    However, with the current SPP status, December is looking like an 'off' month.
    From their recent climb from around the 3.30 mark, I watched it go up and up for no apparent reason apart from a general upward trend to get to around 5.50.
    I wasn't interested at anything above 4.00 as my 'system' showed a retrace to 3.50ish was highly probable, and anything down to 3.20 was probable. I ignored my system, (impulsive jackass I am sometimes).
    I bought in again around 4.20 because it seemed like the fashionable thing to do at the time.:confused:
    So, I still hope you win Zaxon, but, well, current situation suggests otherwise. Which way will the wind blow early next year?
    Cheers.

    As a previous holder of Z1P, I have the same question on my mind and will be watching closely.

    Wishing luck to Zax on this competition. I also have it in the CY19' yearly competition, so a Santa rally would be happily received.

    After a shaky start to the month, looks like here comes the Santa rally, which might be good for consumer goods and retail stocks...

    I think there should be a Wooden Spoon award... haha.
    All I can say is, thank goodness it's a little easier timing trades compared to the competition entry and exit!

    Yeah that could be a another competition of it's own as to who can short a stock for the greatest gains (fall of the stock). ;)

    Or going forward into the new year, the monthly tipping competition could allow short positions. Same rules would obviously apply... state whether you are long or short for the month, have a reasoning (technical or fundamental) behind why the price is going to rise or fall over the next month and post in the stock specific thread. Top three % movers (long or short) would still be the winners for the month. You might see the perma-bears come out of the woodwork and have a few more entries each month. Just a thought. @Joe Blow?

    The problem with allowing short positions is that they would be hard to track. The script that displays the competition page displays the entrants from top to bottom with the current leader the entrant with the highest percentage gain. The current last placegetter is the entrant with the highest percentage loss. It's a simple script that performs a relatively simple function.

    It seems as though re-writing that script to allow for short positions would be quite a complicated endeavour and I'm not sure it's something that can be achieved by the end of this year.

    All good, Joe. It was just a random thought.

    Something for a big further down the track perhaps, once ASF can demonstrate a little growth and get some more $$$ in the kitty.

    Also there is the unfair advantage the bulls have over bears that a stock could go multiple 100's of % to the upside but on the downside the maximum it can lose is 100% if the stock goes to zero.
