Stock Trading VI, 2nd Update

Heading into the last day of trading for Stock Trading VI the contest, the leader board is seeing new faces as the NASDAQ took a hit today.

Contestants participated in one or more of the following categories:

  • One Guess of the NASDAQ Composite Close, this upcoming Friday May 25th.
  • One Stock Pick for the week
  • One Short Pick for the week

Also there is a $200 cash prize for anyone who can correctly guess the NASDAQ Close… to the penny!

Give it up for our blog community participants: Million Dollar Journey (MDJ), Clever Dude (CD), and Money Matter & More Musings (MMM), and your host, the community here of Stock Trading 101 (ST101).
