Stale contest results

It appears as though the contest results have not been updated since 12/31. Anyone know what is going on? Has the contest been discontinued? Very curious to know the results during this volatile week.

My June winner algo is still running. It's up about 0.7% this week. (Total returns since mid-July are about 4.3%).

Way to go Michael! The last update (12/31) showed these return characteristics:

Hi Sally,

The contest is still running! The next submission deadline (contest 14) is February 1st at 9:30AM. We were experiencing a minor issue with the publication of the winner's algos performance .csv files but a fix has been shipped and the files have been updated with data through the end of yesterday.
