There were 224 eligible entries for the December Trader’s Blog Contest. Thank you for everyone who participated. For those of you that answered Bulls, you were right.
The lucky winner of 6 seminars from our INO TV digital library was comment number 198…
Shelton W. of Greenbrier, Tennessee
Congrats Shelton, your discs will be shipped out today. Don’t forget to enter our January Trader’s Blog Contest sponsored by INO TV, where the question is, “Where will the DOW close at the end of Q1 2009?” We’ve had a lot of responses already, so it only takes a minute and a guess.
If you haven't entered Trader's Blog contest for October, you only have until the stroke of midnight on Alls Hallow's Eve to enter. It couldn't be any easier... just click the INO TV and Trader's Blog October Contest link that is sitting on the right hand side of your screen. Click the comment link and just answer the question,
"Besides MarketClub's 'Trade Triangles,' what is your favorite technical analysis indicator?"
It just takes a second and there are no wrong answers, just differences of opinions. I will be using an random integer generator to pick a winner who will receive 6 free DVD/Audios from our INO TV trader's library. These 6 discs will cover an array of technical analysis indicators and will be shipped to you with no strings attached.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN & GOOD LUCK!

Congratulations to Michael P. of Ontario, Canada for winning the first ever Trader's Blog contest. You will receive your iPod touch courtesy of MarketClub.com and INO.com shortly. Thanks for everyone who participated. It was fun to read those could-a, would-a, should-a moments... now it's time to make them happen.
We asked visitors to write about a trade that they wish they would have entered. Here is what Michael wrote:
"One of the best Canadian stocks to play the Canadian Oil Sands is Canadian Oil Sands Trust…COS.UN on the TSX. Around October 2006, rumors started swirling around in the Canadian press that the Canadian Federal government was going to tax all the Income trusts like a corporation, thus any owner of Income trusts would pay double taxes. Well on Oct 31st..Halloween..after market close, they confirmed these rumors. When the market opened on Nov. 1st, COS.UN plunged to a low of $24.32, over 20% in one day. It scared everybody including me because I owned 1300 units. I wish I had taken the contrary view that day and bought more. I would have realized a gain of over 100% in a little over a year, not to mention the 50% increase in the dividend payout since that time!!!"
We plan to have many more contests, so stayed tuned and keep interacting with us and again congrats to Michael.
