Re: Stock Market Contest (Accepting Entries Thru Oct 15)

I'd like to add the following for the non-dow estimates:

SP500 1311
NASDAQ 2301
Oil 51
Gold 526
Gas 16

And if I can change my DOW vote, make it: 11003

Thanks!

No problem with the Coronas. Whoever shows up in my driveway with that Stang gets the brew.* BTW, that is the exact car I'm trying to earn for New Years Eve.* So far I'd have a better chance of parting the Red Sea.*

T-bone: If DanT wins second prize I want 'date' pictures of those two. They wouldn't even need to have their date in the same state.

I'll contribute one oz of silver to the winner of the Gold portion of the contest. But someone needs to remind me New Year's Day--very late in the day.

Guesses of where the Dow, SP500, Nasdaq, Oil, Gas & Gold will be at year-end 2005.
Guess all of them or just the one(s) you like.

The one(s) closest to each average or price will receive an ER Forum Static Eliminator Re-Usable Dryer Sheet courtesy of whoever has an extra available. In addition, JPatrick has volunteered to provide a case of Coronas to each winner.

Most importantly they will be held in great esteem and their pronouncements in 2006 will be given the respect they deserve.

The one with the most closest to awards can choose a night with either


or



and be elevated to official ER Forum Investment Wizard.

I guess the only ill affect of hanging with Dan has been a sudden urge to wear this weird ass shirt and carry around a football

Re: Stock Market Contest

Don't look now, but while I'm on the most optimistic side of this board's guesses, I may end up looking pessimistic with the way the market is going!* The Dow is almost to 11000 right now, and we still have December!*

Re: Stock Market Contest

Laurence,

Dont' get to excited just yet.

It could turn the other way at any time and at the end of Dec. be under 10K.

Remember what Yogi said.

It's not over till it's over!
