We hope you’ve been enjoying the holidays, Stock Challengers! With Christmas now over and the New Year rapidly approaching, the end of this year’s final Stock Challenge is almost upon us…

This week, the Top 3 was dramatically reshuffled. Moreover, the race is tightening — just as we expected!

Meanwhile, member ‘William Brown’ has climbed into third place (72.13%) ahead of fourth place member ‘mountainpose1’ (55.29%).

Just a handful of days remain in the December 2019 Stock Challenge, and it appears we’re in for a final showdown between Robert Kellerman and micronta!
