Cool. Just joined. I went with one mining (Cameco), one diversified financial (Berkshire), one consumer staples (Loblaw Companies), one forestry (Norbord), and one energy (PetroCan). Nothing too speculative here... took about 5 minutes to decide. Slow and steady wins the 3 month race!

If we sign up for the contest and it exceeds the trial date, we won't get billed or charged for anything right? Im assuming the entire contest is cost free...correct? can someone confirm before I sign up?

thx

My strategy is to think of what I would do with my own money, then do exactly the opposite.
