Cool contest, but I don't like the idea how you have to send 30 EC...that's not so cool.

kgaihc said... @ May 11, 2008 at 8:11 AM

hi richard, thanks for visiting my blog.. asking for 30 ec is another way to increase the prizes.. sometimes it difficult to get sponsor. The 30 ec will contribute to the prizes.

kgaihc said... @ May 11, 2008 at 11:57 AM

richard, thanks for your suggestion. I have modified the contest such that no 30 ec is needed, but is limited to 1 prediction per Entrecard account. Cheers!

I found another stock prediction contest that focuses on intra-day and next day stock price predictions:

I would love you to host another one of these stock prediction contest for it is very relative to binary options trading. I am usually checking for signals and indicators on optionfair review site ouroptionfairreview.com and still find it helpful, but to be able to get an exchange information from reliable sites like this one, I think I will continue to increase my profitability.
