Question

So how is everyone doing on Wall Street Sports these days? I've been particpating for about 2.5 months now, and I'm quite sure by the end of this week I will have made my first million!...

...before I was just out buying players for whatever reason, but now I'm starting to buy with a little more stradegy... hopefully I'm using the right stradegy!

For the record, I'm hovering under 10,000 for most of my time playing on the street... right now I'm at 8,002, but yesterday I was at 6,000!... I'm quite happy with that... what about everyone else???

Well, I recently read somewhere in another thread on this board that we had a $1.6 billionaire on these boards... it'd be interesting for him (and everyone else) to join this thread every once in a while to see where he is ranked exactly and his division of mutual funds and stocks.

Here is the update on me: I'm proud of myself for making my first million and that should be doubling fast!!!

Total Stock Value: $2,161,503.00
Total Fund Value: $45,422.36
Cash on Hand: $12,707.02
Total Portfolio Value: $2,219,632.50
Rank: 8,182 out of 618,240

Rank this month is not too high.. harder to get high on the monthly rank with a high dollar amount.. (it's based on % change, which is easier with a low dollar amount (just buy the hottest couple of stocks for a night))...

This month is around 59000, so far

I'm not into this kind of stuff. I like good old fantasy teams where you get a team like in real life.
