I've been playing this Internet rookie stock trading game for a few weeks now (best gainer of the week wins $1K) and I just lucked out. A stock I had been holding for a few days (gold stock) was up high and I bailed on it. Within ten minutes of bailing it dropped hard. I made about $3K in fake money off the deal and would have lost about $6K if I held on.
Now I have to decide whether or not to buy back in after such a big drop. (I just want the $1 weekly prize) that's why I'm going heavy on Charter stock. They tanked last week because of the CA wildfires but I know they will go back up soon enough
