    Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the July 2018 stock tipping competition entry thread! :)

    I'm starting the entry thread for the July competition early this month so everyone can get used to the new rule. As I'm sure most of you have noticed, the amount of posts in stock threads has declined considerably in recent times and the new competition rule is designed to directly address that issue.

    After posting your entry and before the deadline for entries (i.e. midnight on the last day of the month) each entrant must post in the thread on that stock and provide either a general update (technical or fundamental) or a view on why you think the share price is going to increase in the short term. It's that simple. It can be as short as a couple of sentences or as long as you like. The only condition is that the posted content must be on topic and meaningful.

    As I mentioned, the reason for the introduction of this rule is to increase the amount of posts in stock threads. I hope that those who regularly enter the competition and enjoy it will see this new rule as an opportunity to lend a hand and help out ASF. Without an increase in posts in stock threads (and forum activity generally except for the General Chat forum) it is likely that the stock competition will soon be unable to continue, which would be a real shame after almost 14 years of continuous operation.

    Thank you all for your support.

    If anyone has any questions about the new rule, please ask them in this thread. I am always happy to respond to any queries or concerns.

    OK, now that I've gotten that out out the way, on with the July competition....

    This month's competition is proudly sponsored by Pepperstone - The World's Leading Forex Broker.

    Pepperstone is an Online Forex (FX) Trading Broker, providing traders across the globe with cutting edge forex trading technology to offer unmatched top tier liquidity, institutional grade spreads and the security of tight financial regulation. Pepperstone offers online forex trading through multiple forex trading platforms, including Metatrader 4, Webtrader and Apps for iPhone and Android.

    A quick recap of the rules for those not familiar with them:

    1. Each entrant may choose one ASX listed stock. Options, warrants and deferred settlement shares are not permitted.

    2. Stocks with a price of less than $0.01 are ineligible for the competition, as are stocks that are currently suspended from trading.

    3. After posting your entry and before the deadline for entries you must post in the forum thread on that stock providing either a general update or a view on why you think the share price is going to increase in the short term.

    4. The winner is the entrant whose selected stock performs the best in percentage terms between July 1 and July 31.

    5. The maximum number of entrants in the competition is 100.


    The competition winner will receive $100. The second placegetter will win $50 and the third placegetter $25.

    You have until midnight on Saturday, June 30 to enter. However, in practice, entries can be submitted until this thread is closed. No entries submitted after that can be accepted for any reason.

    Please post your entries in this thread. Remember, once you have selected your stock, you CANNOT change it for any reason.

    Best of luck to all entrants! :D

    Thanks Craton! We've gotta keep the stock chat going. We can't afford to lose the "S" in "ASF". :)

    Cheers Joe. The "S" is for stock commentary not social commentary huh? :roflmao:
    I reckon the new change is a great idea. Once one heads to the thread of the chosen stock, the information (or lack thereof) on said stock thread can be very enlightening.
