SEE NEW TRADES BELOW!!!! (2/25/19)
We make a lot more trades than we write about. Here’s a list of every market we’ve bet on and whether we were right or wrong in the end. Check back periodically to see if we’re into anything new that we haven’t documented in long-form.
Two notes on transparency:
(1) We don’t pump and dump. A lot of PredictIt’s big traders use the discussion boards to prey on rookies and those who don’t have time to follow every single detail of politics. We don’t do that. We call it straight and want to be totally up-front with you about our wins and losses.
(2) Some of these trades look pathologically insane. For example, note that we lost money betting that there would be a December 2018 government shutdown (there was, but PredictIt’s rules were a disaster) and won money by betting that there are only 52 Republicans in the Senate currently, even though there are obviously 53. These are what insiders call, “Rules Cucks” — any questions on them, just hit us on the DMs.
Also, be sure to check out the record of guest contributors.
So far, Zoltar-the-All-Knowing leads the pack with an 18-0 record.
