Agreed, but the leaders at the moment we those who bought steinhoff this year. Also a massive risk.

It'll stay for the year, I think the volatility and potential total collapse could be real learning opportunities.

It's not aimed at you, it'll appear on anyone who does anything with BTC in the comp. Now that you're at #1 I imagine a lot of people will be thinking about it, and potentially thinking about buying in real life. The volatility could wipe people out.

Slightly down at the moment :) You'll either win or come last with bitcoin! If a bitcoin trader wins at he end of the year I may need to have a regular leaderboard for those who didn't use bitcoins.

@jaDEB Bitcoin is there as a test for the year, it's listed under Crypto: 0.01 Bitcoins. Thanks for the help Thor.

@mp, has your thread vanished already? Let me know if an email would be useful.

Haha, that might actually be fun. Where could I pull the actual price from?

Shares / Re: Is Easy Equities safe? Opinions?

Like everyone has said, it's safe as anything else. Gcr made a great point that you should worry more about the company who's shares you're buying, than the company you're buying them with.

I love easy equities, my and my sons TFSA are with them, but I'm not a fan of their USD holdings. They're far too expensive for my liking.

You'd get far better value for money looking into one of the foreign discount brokers. Do some research on Degiro and Interactive Brokers. You'll get far better value for money with them, but the setup process is a little more tedious.

Nah, multiple questions and you give a random one when he signs up.

I would load that question and its key via an Ajax request and generate it client side plus a honeypot. So you'll end up with:

input 1, hidden, name="questions"
label, question text
input 2, name="answer"
input 3, hidden, name="telephone"

Reason:
1. It is generated client side so bots must support JavaScript
2. Random question so difficult to specifically target you
3. If that honeypot (telephone) comes back with a value you know a bot entered it

...or just use Google CAPTCHA
Great ideas, you're a smart rodent :)

Looks like it was a calculation bug. Should be fixed now.

I had to change my security question, too many bots getting through. What do you think of: When something is really nice, in afrikaans we say "Dis baie l****r"
