Its been a few months since I updated my Updown performance. My last update was for the April results. There have been 5 months since then.
Here's a summary of my performance versus the S&P 500
As you can see I beat the S&P 500 for 4 of the 5 months. In total from May to Sept. my account has lost -11% but the S&P 500 is down -17%.
In 2011 so far I'm 4.8% ahead of the index. My portfolio is 5.8% down and the S&P 500 is 10.7% down.
I haven't been actively trading in Updown since May. I originally started playing Updown to test how well I could pick stocks and to get some experience trying out different methods or strategies without wasting real money. I'm not sure if I'll continue to use Updown or not.
