Following discussion in the deflation thread, I thought I'd set this up ASAP to stop further derailment over there. This competition finishes at the stroke of midnight when it turns 2019 in the UK.
Hat tip to @stokiescum for suggesting it initally.

I'll also post an 'ending 2019' one once we've got a basic set of rules agreed.

For this thread, I propose you have £100k divided between whatever investments you choose, however you like. Anything goes, as long as there are publicly available verifiable figures to back up your valuation i.e. no classic cars or similar. Even lottery tickets are acceptable, as long as you post the numbers you'll buy until the end of the year.

Thoughts on the suggested rules welcome, as are entries.

True! Is that your entry?

Happy with the vague rules?

8 weeks is super short but I'm sticking with 100% Wesdome @4cad / 2.35gbp as mentioned in the original thread. Production update next week and resource update to follow should give it a nice bump.

Thanks for setting up the separate thread Bumblebee. Its not Fantasy Football, its Fantasy FTSE!

I'm thinking it's dollar down and gold up over the next 2 months so my entries are:

  • 25% UDN - Invesco DB USD Bear ETF
  • 75% GDXJ - VanEck Junior Miners

Do you want these put in that google docs spreadsheet somewhere?

Not sure what to do with USD/CAD ones, should we just go on %age terms? or make an attempt at currency conversion?

i reckon we get shot of units and total values and just go with a notional 1 unit (ie 1 share) and just watch %ages, so total %age could be just a summary of %ages.

Anyhoo, best get back to work... already a bit behind.

I'll go 50% AUY and 50% bitcoin - even though they will probably go nowhere by end of year :D Can someone add it for me?

add it yourself, sheets open to all and sundry.

You can copy spunkos line and change the lookup to 'BTC/GBP'

 

(i tried /GBX to keep them all at pence but couldnt pull it in pence, so i took GBP(pound) and divides by 100 to make Pence).

auy is nyse:auy, so will come back in usd, so need to get to cents.

We could take all the unit/price on 3/11/2018 and price now columns out and just use the pulled prices since the unit is notionally always 1. Ah, ill get round to it tomorrow, unless someone else wants to do it.

sok, i did it for you, made the other changes as well and added some green/red colouring, also marooned up the winner, looks like spunko is still ahead, being crypto i expect them to be heavily negative by tuesday then up 80% by weds only to tank 400% by thursday. etc.

Actually i reckon after the schnitzel last year of crapto, its probably pretty stable now.

I was going to put mine on Enable last night but bottled it. Trying to play safe usually ends in tears so you could be right.

Man City 6 Southampton 1

Running total now £112,500

Well done, Demo Sir - 12.5% return over 90 minutes, even after 2 months, could be hard to top. I am hoping that my real money bets (I would never wager on Saints beating Man City) come good over the next 8 weeks...

This virtual investment malarkey is good fun, but on a serious note, it does demonstrate how we are all gambling, to a greater or lesser extent.

Good luck all.
