Buying stock for a short period

well later this week my accounting class is going to be playing a stock game and i was wondering what type of stock would be the best to play with from October to mid December. I know stocks are low right now but due to economical problems stock prices are dropping and it a 50/50 gamble.

but since it play money i probably could stick the 100k into google and get 50/50 if google restabilized.

SDS
GLD
TFI
BWX

Equal weight portfolio 25% a piece is probably how I would play a stock game for that time period.

Cool!

You should do some research on what you own now.

If you have anymore questions as to what you in fact own then post up.

Should have gotten some SDS... Don't say I didn't warn you.

Sell your SDS tomrw and wait for a bounce to buy some more. Lock those profits in.

Trade out your SDS position for SSO, its the exact opposite of SDS.

currently holding on to
100 Share of APPL
400 shares of bwx
500 of tfi
2000 of atvi
1000 slxp
1000 wvcm
500 gld
500 sds
...............

So as of right now i should cash out and cash in for SSO and hope the market recovers?

100 Share of APPL- Hold this, I would try and pick some more up for the short term.
400 shares of bwx- I think this is a hold. The dollar has been in a tremendous run.
500 of tfi- I would think about trading this in for some JNK, its more risky should get a pop.
2000 of atvi- You could hold this. I have no opinion.
1000 slxp- Hold.
1000 wvcm- No opinion
500 gld- with the deterioration globally I think gold will continue to surge.
500 sds- DEF flip this. If you need to dump a little and wait in cash for a bounce that works too. It is nearly impossible to flip perfectly, by that i mean at the exact bottom. If you get close you should be fine.

Alright now just stay in a holding pattern for a little while.

This burst should last for a month or so.
