Function to determine list max without itertools

I have created a function that takes a list as an argument.
Without using itertools I want to compare each item in the list to find the max.
However instead of the max I keep getting the last item in the list. Where is my logic wrong here?
items = list(listarg)
myMax = 0
for index, item in enumerate(items):
for otheritem in items[index + 1 :]:
if item < otheritem:
myMax = otheritem
elif item > otheritem:
myMax = item
myMax = myMax
Seems like it should work but doesn't.
