I am wondering if there are any good traders actively posting on ET. There has been much talk about how poorly daytraders do overall over any extended period of time. I would like to pose this challenge to anyone who is up for it: Looking at a list of stocks (say 10), can you as a daytrader using whatever techniques you use (i.e. magic eightball, etc.) do better than 50% (i.e. 5 stocks) . In other words, are your methods or indicators better than 50/50 (guessing) if a stock will close the day up or down. I am interested in seeing if there really are any good daytraders who post here who could over a 1-2 week period do significantly better than a monkey could! o.k. I guess I am the monkey! If you are interested in the challenge, PM me. I am going to put up some money for this challenge.
