Where will the Dow be at on Dec. 31, 2013?

Let's have some fun and see who has the best insight into 2013.

I predict that the Dow will close at 14,150 (a new record) on 12/31/13.

Where do you think the Dow will be a year from now?

I have no insight into this at all! None whatsoever!

Contrary to public opinion, my crystal ball really isn't very reliable about the market. Honest.

You made me re-read the question....I thought 2012 was what we were guessing!

Taking the current uncertainty about any decisions on the "fiscal cliff" even makes 2012 too difficult for me ....so 2013 is way out of my wheel house!

It is funny you ask as a buudy and I bet a lunch every year on where the three majors Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq may end the next year. We are exchanging our 2013 predictions today. Two out of three wins.

So here is my predictions 2013.
Dow 14,279
S&P 1,538
NASDAQ 3,342

Your way too modest, as we all know how reliable the wh_ _ call is in signaling a market drop

It will be talked about for years, will go in record books, will have statisticians trying to compute the probability for years, will be an essential example in numerous textbooks, and will only be believed by those that verify: DOW(12/31/2012) = DOW(12/31/2013)

This thread made me think of Rukeyser and his old show.




My prediction for 2013.......Dow 13,500.
