Submissions due by 12/30 midnight ET so I can have the 31st to rest.

Rules:
no currency market currencies
no options
no futures
no futures options
no cryptocurrencies (but anything on a stock exchange is game)
no stocks already in bankruptcy

kitco for metals first and foremost.
I'm buying on the ask and selling on the bid.
other metals not on kitco will need a quote source.

I see greek bonds were played in 2017. that's fair game as long as I have a quote source.


# 1 winner will get a Silver Eagle ex: Painted

    I didn’t realize that JCP was almost dead pricewise already so change it to PRTA short to keep this fair. It may not make it another week above a buck

    long or short?

    and there is no rule against under a buck stocks. plus you can have a contingency if "things change."

    for 2018 ISCO was botanist's pick at $1.60

    Buy a deep out of the money call or buy a deep out of money put. It most likely will expire worthless. There is no reason why someone trying for last place cannot find a trade that would result in 100% loss.

    Since there can only be one winners, folks tend to find comfort in sharing a loss. The old misery like company thing. In one respect, it's why gold bugs cheer for other assets to decline.

    there are side bets.
    generally middle of the pack and last place get a prize from someone else.

    It takes the sport out of it.
    The way I'd run it is the winning stock would be the one with the lowest stock price that didn't go bankrupt. If one wanted to increase the sportiness, you could add other factors like the stock has to be a minimum of $1.00 at the the end, or you could set a minimum starting price for the stocks to be considered for this category, such as $5.00. My pick for this year was at $6.70 at the entry and was not in any "trouble" (meaning it wasn't in bankruptcy or being heavily sued) at the time.

    It's like the game limbo, how low can you go without hitting the pole or falling over.
