Well, they just lost that Tanker contract...which dropped it a bit...but they (their McDonnel douglas Division) got a contract extention with the Navy. And I think the 787 program moving along will really help...as well as perhaps their protest of the Tanker decision.

And I have some loyalty tho them as well (I used to work for them as a contract employee, want to get back in with them as perm. employee if I can)

Hi Lyssa, I decided to try. At first I wasn't sure because I was like, "gee if I do this pretend and I do really well, I'll be mad that I didn't do it for real." But, then I thought, "it's a good way to practice and see if some of the stocks I'm thinking about are worth buying into." So, I set up an account and some trades. I tried to do some options but I couldn't and I was too lazy to try and figure out why. (I was getting some error about the underlying stock not trading. I'm wondering if you can only try options when the market's open.)

Have no idea on options.. never even looked into them. It will be a great learning experience for all of us I hope!

I've read a couple of books about them and I bought and sold one and made $80. I have another that's due to expire in May, right now it's down $8, but I'm hoping it will go up before expiration. Since I'm new to it I'm risking $100 or less on the options I buy. (I also don't have a lot of money to play with, so I'm only playing with money I can afford to lose).xangelx

To answer my own question, I think rankings are done overnight. Therefore, we may all show up tomorrow. I see that it says there are 7 players, yet it says no players in the game to rank.

:confused:

Is anyone seeing anything I'm not seeing? I see my own portfolio and nothing else.

I'm interested. Let me know what we are going to do.

Read Post# 14 in this tread. That will give you the link to join.

I think it will ask if you want to join a club at that time. I had to use a search by member, which you will type Lyssarene. After that, it brought up the C Infocenter club. You can join the club, and sooner or later we will get to see how others are doing.

It's not too late, when I checked around noon (EST), I was down, so everyone who starts later will at least be ahead of me.

OK I need to put more money in the pool...i just stuck my toes in the shallow end (didn't even risk 25K, and "made" 200 bucks...so that's not bad.

I tried to "rank" myself and see where I ranked among others in the game but it told me there were on others in the game to be compared to...?
