Re-Cap: News Trivia, Celeb Cromwell And More


Here's our re-cap of the day. Remember--as we've said today, because of a problem with the news trivia question, all you have to do is select any answer, no matter if you get an incorrect or correct response, and you will get the $1,000 Bonus Bucks. BUT you must select an answer to get credit. The video question is all right so you will have to answer correctly for that.

The video question is worth $2,000 Bonus Bucks: This morning, the Bank of Korea decided to keep its interest rate on hold at what percentage? Your selection of answers is: 3.5% or 2.5% or 3.0% or 4.5%.

The answers can be found in the News and Video sections of Bonus Bucks will be added to your portfolio cash balance by 8:30 a.m. the day after you answer the question correctly. (again, you will credit full credit for news trivia question by picking any answer)

Here's the video update from "Power Lunch." CNBC's Bill Griffeth got a chance to interview actor James Cromwell about his portfolio choices in Trading With The Stars--James is now in 4th place with just a day to go--he's down from 3rd place. James said he's learned a lot--and that in the long term, going green when it comes to investing--can make you money (by the way, James is in "Spiderman 3")
