    Hey guys I thought it would be fun to have a friendly investing contest.

    If you want to play it's simple... go to Updown.com and join the Clutchfans contest I started and we'll see who can grow their portfolio the most over a span of a year. It's great practice for learning to invest in stocks or improve your batting average and I'd love to connect with you guys on this level and share tips between each other. So what say you? Are you wise enough to pick the right stock? :)

    You should set limits, and not have people play penny stocks and try to get lucky, if you are really interested in investments.

    I don't know anything about investments or the stock market... so I think I'll end up:

    I don't know if 3 months is long enough to be "investing"

    It should be changed to like a year or at least 6 months.

    I agree... thought it was longer so I have changed it to 6 months.

    Thanks.

    Yeah I cleared my portfolio so we should all be on an even playing field at the start. Once we get into it we can share what works and what hasn't been working. Should be a good time since the Christmas season is in full swing!
