the year after a presidential election is often a sub-par one for stocks, so I'll say down slightly, say, 12,500

Alright, I'll play - 13,100. So depending on what happens on Monday, that might mean an increase for the year.

I think the world will come to an end and the Dow will not close. The Mayan apocalypse countdown was off by one year because of the Gregorian calendar. If it had started with year "0" as the Mayans intended, next year would be the real 2012.

Either that or 13973.16

It sounds like there is a story here that the new members are not familiar with. Did W2R predict the 2008 crash?

Was anything whispered on 12/31/12?

We are within shooting distance of a new record for the Dow. I think we are going to get there this year. Is anyone interested in updating their forecast?

I do detect a lot of "pessimism" in this thread.
