What stock market competition was it that you placed 12th in?

By Chezo (Chezo) on Wednesday, August 25, 2004 - 12:50 am: Edit

its by Sir Wilfred Laurier University
and you are mistaken, i did not place 12, i placed 250+ because my stocks plunged *sniff*

Why weren't you protecting your money on the 3rd to last day my friend? LOL only kidding. How'd your money plunge? what stocks specifically.

I was national 12th, and only $700 lower than the 10th guy, so i thought I might have a chance to get 10 +. I think it was SWG on TSX, it fletuates alot, a 4% drop or increase in a day is common. I was able to time my purchase and sales pretty well. Then their quater predictions came out and it drop $12, which is like a 20% plunge.
