Good morning everyone and welcome to the October 2018 stock tipping competition entry thread! :)

The October competition is proudly sponsored by FP Markets, an Australian owned and ASIC regulated broker with over 12 years experience and 35 industry awards including Highest Overall Client Satisfaction 5 years running. They facilitate trading in equities, indices, commodities, futures, Forex and Bitcoin via their MetaTrader4 platform.

FP Markets offer 10,000+ equities, indices and commodities across all major international markets. All equity CFDs are DMA priced and 100% hedged. FP Markets are not a market maker so their interests are aligned with that of their clients. You can go long on everything listed on the ASX and international markets and they have the widest short offering of any Australian broker.

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 October 1 and October 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 Sunday, September 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

Yep, even though a month is not a very long time but that does not make it a short competition .....

Cuumorrrn all you lot, don't have to be a guru but just put something in, have a go ff.s.

Most of my picks are just on an overall whim and surprisingly I often fluke the top three.

The big thing is, it's great to be involved and a part of it. So look at a few stocks and charts, toss a coin and be with me on a great community trip.

So October, you are all in. xox

I'll definitely be hopping on board the October stock tipping competition train. I just need a couple more days to decide on my entry. I hope others come along for the ride too. The competition is always more fun with more entrants. :)

Keep those entries coming please ladies and gentlemen. We need a minimum of 20 entries each month in order for the competition to proceed, so every entry counts.

To those entering, please ensure that you have posted in the thread of your entry before the end of the month pursuant to Rule #3 of the competition rules.

Thank you and the best of luck to all! :)

I'm going to take a punt on Lindian Resources (LIN) this month. Looks like a rare earths project in Malawi is finally coming together for them. See my post in the LIN thread.

Damn, so that's the secret. I've been using the weekend before the comp opens to run my special ASF Monthly Comp combo program through the computer. It needs a few hours to do the calculations and then I review the charts with my 2 page checklist. Finding something going up the next day or next week is easy. Finding something going up for a whole month is tough.

The pink tape is my weekly system and the other daily. I don't have one for monthly! That why I need the whole week-end.

My record in this comp is lousy. Heck, even the kid can win with a $14 stock.

"Overall whim" Where can I get one? Would an ordinary whim be OK or do I have to pay extra for the overall version?

Doesn't look like we'll get the number this month, it appears the leader board from last month has scared any potential players.

I'll take VLT if we get the comp up and running. I'll do what everyone else does and pick a penny stock and hope it doubles this month.

I like to choose Clean Teq CLQ.

I have posted there already. My pick is number 10. We are half way to minimum number of entrants. Hope there is a mad rush tomorrow.

Sorry for forgetting to enter during September. I missed the deadline. Feel guilty because Joe did me a favour for August comp.

Next month, am I allowed to say I choose this stock as a random choice in the stock thread? I know it adds nothing to the stock discussion but it might spark someone's interest. If I choose a stock that I know nothing about, maybe I can post up a chart - say I have no idea what I am looking at and maybe someone can do an interpretation for me??

Ahh. Time for me to put the kiss of death on another unsuspecting ASX listed company. Seems all of my picks suddenly run into disaster and the share price drops to rock bottom leaving me at the bottom of the table :)

October's unlucky recipient is:

88E

Thanks Joe.
