I see one of three things happening in Q4-
1. early reports of Nov/Dec consumer sales are strong- Dow will br around 10700
2. early reports show weak consumer demand and weak sales- Dow down to 9800
3. some sort of terrorist attack in the US- Dow 8000

I predict #2

Re: Stock Market Contest

Barring a catastrophy like a terrorist attack, a major earthquake, or the like, I doubt we will see the DOW below 10,000 ever again. *It's a psychological number that tells people it's time to buy. *There's a lot of cash sitting on the sidelines looking to get into the stockmarket. *A 10,000 DOW will cause a feeding frenzy that will push it right back up.

The market almost always falls in October. Just wait until the Nov-Dec rally.

I am now out of just about all my equities that are sensitive to robust consumer spending and I am short or have puts on about $100k worth of stuff that will get blasted if the economy goes into the drink: hotels, subprime credit card lenders, highly leveraged movie theater chain, a California S&L. Considering a short or puts on a fast food chain too.

The stock market is pretty much where it was 5 years ago. It's not an exciting place to be invested, but I'll be patient.

Yeesh, I'm starting to get a little worried about my prediction, but I'll stand by it. Add me in for $63 per barrel of Texas tea. Oil, that is....
