The stock market, football and my friend Slicky....
Wanna see how I'm gonna tie all those together?
The idea of playing the stock market (at least prior to the world financial system collapsing in a steaming pile of... well, burnt up corporations) is to buy low and sell high. The trick when a stock rises is to sell it at it's highest point.... ie. don't sell too early while it's still rising and don't wait too long so that it's already on the decline.
So like Warren Buffet, I've been trying to hold out on posting this until the perfect moment... which I believe is right now.
I play a game called I Know the Score on the Premier League website. It's basically guessing game results and is played by exactly 179,978 people worldwide. I track my results against Slick, Tammi, Jenya and a few other folks as well as where I stand overall. Currently I sit at #16,673 which isn't too bad (in the top 10% of players).
Slick on the other hand sits at #602... in the top 0.3%! I have been wanting to give him mad props but didn't want to jinx his run. He's been moving up the rankings recently and I sense this might be the time to "sell off" (AKA write this post).
Only time will tell if this level is his highest point of the season.
He can't win the game over-all since the current leader has nearly 50% more points with only a half-dozen game weeks to go, HOWEVER here's hoping he keeps rocking his way up the charts.
