    I knew you would Mr Fincher. We can compare notes on Xmas day whilst that lovely Fiance of yours cooks me my Xmas Turkey.

    I think you should spend all your 10 grand on buying shares in Tottenham Hotspur!

    How has everyone got on with this ?

    I know in terms of a 'comp' it was very short notice and didnt give much time to get to involved but I've had good PM's from a few of you so it was worth a post at least.

    Right ladies and gents - a bit late after the closing time but he we are.

    A few of you PM'd me to say you were doing really well then fucked it up by putting on massive bets on a all or nothing type deal - serves you right but thats always a factor when using play money - thats why play money poker games are so crap with everyone going "all in" with shite cards.

    I hope it did show a few of you a glimpse into a world you may have otherwise never bothered looking into and maybe even carry it on - I certainly did pick an interesting time to run this what with Dubai/Gold/AIM slump and a few other things going on.

    As for the prize, let me know your total, with a screen grab as of the end of play on the 18th and i'll crown a winner.

    Merry Christmas.

    Haha - same as you, didnt log in for a while and a market slump set of a load of my stop losses. The devil of the game unfortunately.

    I got up to about 25k before all that.

    Hello. Thanks for starting this post Ive had a bit of fun playing.I am a total complete novice at this Ive made a grand today. I went onto one of the above links and looked who was predicted to do well. I have then picked one of them that is moving up and down quite a bit. Basically watched what is low and high and then kept buying low and watching until it made money and sold then waiting till its gone back down again.
    Im guessing this is not the way to do this but has seemed to work.
    What has everyone else been doing? Are you all going loner term and buying then leaving a few days.
    What methods are you using to pick the shares?
    Also what is the difference when buying between STOP and LIMIT.

    Thanks
