The stocks are not doing well at all and I have dropped off the listing. My portfolio on the simulator is now so low in value compared to the other players that my ranking is not applicable.
I guess I was not good at picking the best performing stocks after all. The competition still has a few more months to go so maybe it will get better in time. I just really need to focus on not trading every minute I see a price change because each trade costs money and sometimes I have not earned enough interest to cover the cost of the trade by the time I do it.
