With the Dow up over 2,000 points since last week, it’s no surprise that the returns of members ‘Scoby13’ and ‘Joe Knows’ are down (active Stock Challengers will recall they picked the TVIX to rocket to returns of over 200% last week!). Nonetheless, the two are still neck and neck for first place; as of market close, Scoby13 (117.40% return) has now overtaken Joe Knows (110.22% return) for first place. And, although they are still far away from contesting Scoby13 and Joe Knows, members ‘ hotdogger49’ and ‘Robert Smith’ have ridden the market wave up this week, both currently tieing for 3rd place with returns of 31.84%.
