It's been a while, but I would like to congratulate Lord Ratman for a great job in the stock market game, winning by a comfortable margin. Ratman made one of the best possible moves in the game: putting all his money in Facebook. As a result, he won significantly in the game.

1. Ratman
2. Imabench
3. DanT
4. Mister Muted
5. Roy Latham

Now for the worst players. The worst player of this game was WSA, who lost a heck of a lot of money. He made one of worst possible moves in the game: putting all his money in Facebook. As a result, he lost significantly in the game.

25. Ask Bob
26. David Shim
27. Koopin
28. Harrison Coombes
29. WSA

Note that early in the game AskBob was leading. In a stock market game the win comes from picking a high-risk high-volatility stock that's likely to either soar or die, and then lucking out when it soars. In real life, that's not a good idea.

Hedge funds tend to use the high-risk strategy, picking only a very few stocks. Investors have to believe the fund manager is so smart he'll make the right picks.

In game I shorted Treasuries, went long on oil, and bet that Obamacare would spur the construction of medical facilities. Treasury shorts and oil won, but medical facilities were cut back in the face Obamacare. I should have known.

I just bet it all on netflix and I f*cking hit the jackpot when 'House of Cards' and 'Orange is the new Black' became massive successes.
