Quantcast
I have 34 consecutive profitable trades of 15% or better. How is this possible? Every day there are hundreds of stocks setting new highs, no matter what happens in the overall market. Many of these stocks are still at very reasonable valuations. Afraid of buying stocks at their highs? Think of it this way: a new high is really a future floor for companies with solid financial underpinnings. Quantitative momentum modeling makes it easy to identify stocks that can continue this upward momentum trend. Why does this happen? It's really very simple..ask me about what investors and cows have in common. I am $$$ MR. MARKET $$$. I AM HUGE!!! Bring me your finest meats and cheeses. You can join in on the fun.

    Default Karels Investopedia Portfolio

    So, I am again Mimicking $$$Mr. Market$$$. I have created a portfolio for one of the stock games on Investopdia. Unforunately this is only viewable with a (free) Investopedia account, but then you will be able to check the holdings and trading history too, I suppose. That was not possible on Marketocracy. Currently I rank 821 from 3989, with a Portfolio Value of 1,000,000 (the start value).

    So, I got a Top 3, UBNT, AGX and THO, and I picked THO, a recent $$$Mr. Market$$$ pick. It gained another 15% since $$$Mr. Market$$$ sold it, but who cares. It will be my first pick of a portfolio of 8, each position entered at approximately 10% of the then current portfolio value. So I ordered to buy 970 at the Open. (Never buy at the open, but this is for convenience.)

    Wish me luck! No, better, wish me success!

    So THO entered my Investopedia portfolio at 101.83 it now is at 99.56, which makes my portfolio perform just a bit worse than SPY over the week, and at only 10% invested. The aim is 80% and a better performance. My next pick is NVDA.

    Some musings on the Investopedia Stock Simulator.

    1. I miss Marketocracy. There are no fees and transaction costs on Investopedia and where Marketocracy imposed a limit on your fills, here orders just fill. There is a top 10 or so where people make crazy trades, trading a whole days volume in one day, on penny stocks. As those trades donít drive the stock price, that makes for easy gains. But with that said, I donít mind too much. Investopedia is just for keeping score and it does that, even if a bit less realistically than Marketocracy.

    2. My portfolio dropped to rank 6034 for today. The large drop is mainly because some 4000+ entries are still at the initial 1,000,000. When my portfolio gets positive, I will jump some 4/5000 places up again.

    3. I got lucky on NVDA, more or less ($103.80). I accidentally entered a market-open order, and that worked well that day And no, no special transaction costs.

    4. I plan to buy 8 stocks, position size about $100,000, or 10%. Then I will sit back and wait until one of those stocks hits a 5% gain or goes 3 months without a 5% gain. In the latter case, I will replace it, in the former the stock will start a new 3 month period.

    Completely unimportant, but just as an illustration: my portfolio turned positive yesterday, and its rank now is 529.
