I have lost a lot of money on the Zacks stock challenge because I kept shifting my stocks around. I would sell every time I noticed the value of the stocks going down. Then they would be up again the next day at a higher price which would have earned me some money.

I have decided to just leave the stocks that I have alone right now and see what happens in a few weeks instead of trying to tweak my holdings every day…sometimes multiple times during the day.

For all the money I have lost I am just glad this is just a simulation because I would be really mad right now if I had messed up like this for real.
