None

Angie Ellis of 80 20 Investments has increased her lead in week two of the four-week Shares Race.

The stock that shot her ahead of the pack in week one, DigitalX, has had another very good week with Ellis' original $10,000 in the stock growing to $37,500.

Among other things, DigitalX is a facilitator of overseas money transfers with a digital currencies remittance product called AirPocket.

Another of her picks, Australian Mines, had a very good week with her original $10,000 growing to $22,131.

That takes Ellis' starting $100,000 to $150,142, from $131,663 at the end of week one.

The Australian sharemarket also had a big week with leading indices crossing 6000 points for the first time since the global financial crisis.

After trading sideways for most of the year, our market has shot up from about 5700 points at the start of October.

The Dartboard remains in second place, at $139,999, having randomly selected DigitalX. Its next-best performer is De Grey, a West Australian miner that explores for base and precious metals.

Richard Pritchard, who plays as the Chartist, is in third place with Titomic his best pick.

The company uses 3D printing to bring speed and scale to "metal additive manufacturing".

Pritchard's second-best performer is Cann Group, which undertakes research and cultivation of cannabis for human medical uses. His total portfolio value is $120,037.

The Shares Race is a fantasy shares game. Contestants start with $100,000 across 10 stocks.
