Updown Performance : September up 5.7%

Practice invest

My Updown account was up 5.7%  in September 2010 but  the S&P 500 was up about 5.5%.

In 2010 I'm up 12% and the S&P 500 is up 2.3%.  I'm beating the index by 9.7% so far this year

Since starting in March 2008 I'm up 15.7%  while the S&P 500 is down 15.5%.

For some reason the reporting of the performance of the S&P 500 was not being tracked properly on the Updown site.   They were showing the S&P as 0.0% change for  Sept. which didn't look right and I noticed they didn't seem to show the S&P in their graph after August.   So I manually figured the change of the S&P for September. 

I only made one trade this month.  I bought some Intel (INTC) when it went under $18.   This is just a short term speculative buy.    I plan to sell it all when it hits $21.


  1. Are you competing in any particular group or contest in Updown? I remember setting up an account but then forgot about it.

  2. Jonathan,

    I'm not in any groups or anything in Updown. I'm just doing it to play around and test out stock picking strategies.
