A couple of weeks ago, the readers here participated in a stock picking challenge hosted by Stock Trading 101. The contest consisted of picking the NASDAQ close, along with a long and short stock pick. It turns out that the community here are pretty good stock pickers! MillionDollarJourney.com had the best overall score by a landslide! Here are the results below:
