Last week, I posted about a stock contest where blog communities had to pick a stock and the NASDAQ closing price for the week. Guess what? We won! My pick of AUA.v and the NASDAQ closing price of 2490 was good enough to bring us out on top.

Thanks to all that participated. I also would like to thank Stock Trading 101 for hosting the contest, great job indeed. Blain, a full time stock trader, has agreed to answer any questions that readers may have about stock trading. If you have a question, you can head over to Stock Trading 101, or you can contact me and I can relay the information.

Happy Investing!

Here is some information about Blain: My name Blain Reinkensmeyer and I am guy behind Stock Trading 101. This blog really came about through other blogs I have written and been a part of in the past. I love stocks, I love writing, and I love teaching, so to me this is my dream job. I currently live in Michigan, USA. I am still a youngin, being only 19 years old. I dropped out of school after my freshman year of college to trade stocks full time, and have been doing so ever since. I started taking interest in the stock education area last year while doing research on different web sites that offer stock resources, products, etc. What I found is that just about everything these days comes with a price tag, and most of the time that price tag really isn’t even worth it.

I went ahead and created the Falkin Investing Organization, which is a non-profit dedicated to the stock market. The site’s sole purpose is to connect traders of all experience levels together without “must buy” products and services. […]
