    So what place is everyone in and how does it make you feel? :shock:

    I'm in 2nd in the actives and 84th place overall.

    I'm really surprised 2.90% is good enough for 2nd in the actives almost halfway though the month!

    Whats going on!?!?

    I was doing good until my main company just got in trouble for patent infringment which caused its stocks to slide from the 40's into the teens.

    I guess its a good thing it happened now since I was going to invest some real money into that stock next year.

    Oh Hell Nah!

    What had happened was... lol. Just wait until the end of the month, then you will see whats up. Wait until I get my vacation days in a couple weeks. When I have some time off of work, I will make your % look silly.

    Ya Heard!

    I was doing very well in the begining but then I got a lot more money put into my account so my returns at the start of the month became a lot smaller. Oh well.

    Studyicon After further review, I have come to the conclusion that a return of -4.33% and 283/1139 ranking is not acceptable. With that,my investment direction has to take a different approach. I expect to drop further in the standings today but should see a improvement starting in the New Year :? We shall see :shock:

    I've only been toying with it up to now, so I've averaged -3%. Trades being $10 market orders, I know I can't diversify too much or own enough shares to make fast cash on the up days and get myself out of the red. But, I've been working so much, I never have enough time to find the best 30-day "barn-burner-of-the-month". I'm gonna start January more serious with no more than 2 or 3 stocks and see what happens.

    i started out good this month but i fed into the draw of buying a bunch of stuff that i wanted to follow, and now my portfolio keeps teetering between - and +...im learning from my mistakes here though and hopefully next month will be even better.
    im currently 21st in the actives :x

    My babies have started to run today, gaining (as of right now) 9% and 6%. This took me from second to last among actives to 6th. Lets hope I stay there :D .

    End-of-day edit: Those two stocks (RIMM and IIJI) closed up 10.6% and 8.6% respectively. Probably one of the best single day leaps I've seen because it involved two companies. I am happy :D .

    If I had only followed my original plan rather than trying new things :roll:

    But I guess that's what this site is about, right? Learning, not just doing the same old thing.

    Moved back up to 2nd in actives while my stocks are doing what I thought they would have. But had I stuck with my 100% investment in MXO, you people would have had a tough battle!!! :twisted: It is up 55% this week.
