How to decide what Spike picks to follow
All Spikers must submit their favorite pick for the week ahead on Sunday. Members submit picks on a voluntary basis. A Member can click on any pick that interests him or her, go to My Watchlist and click again to receive updates.
With so many picks to choose from, where do you begin? A good place to start might be the Top Five Spikers link on the Spike Picks tab. Look at the quality of their equity curves (you can see any Spiker’s equity curve). You want to follow Spikers with the smoothest equity curves that slope gently from the lower left to the upper right, with only small drawdowns. This is even more desirable than the maximum performance gain.
