Since 2000 Marketocracy has offered a free platform where individual investors can manage their own model portfolios against 100,000 other investors, some are individuals but many are professionals. Each quarter they rank all the portfolios against each other and periodically rank the top portfolios against the professionally managed, publicly traded mutual funds listed by Morningstar that have been in existence for at least 5 years against the top Marketocracy players that also have at least a 5 year track record.
Marketocracy recently published a new ranking as of 9/09/2013 in which the Barchart Van Meerten Speculative Portfolio(VMSPC) which is featured on Barchart under Stock Picks was ranked as beating all but 2 of the top ranked professionally managed mutual funds. It was closely behind the # 2 ranked fund Prime Cap Odyssey Aggressive Growth (MUTF:POAGX) and slightly ahead of the #3 ranked professionally manage fund Allianz AGIC Ultra Microcap Institutional Fund (MUTF:AUMIX).
On Barchart Stock Picks you can follow every trade in 3 of my model portfolios where I explain the reasons behind every buy and sell using the Barchart technical indicators, plus see how the Barchart technical indicators aid me in finding the best stocks in different sectors.
Another feature offered is the Barchart Chart of the Day where I search the entire Barchart database to find the stock that shows the best combination of Barchart technical indicators and has a really great chart.
