The most accurate prediction I or anyone can possibly be is Somewhere between 0 and infinity

No hang-on let me be more accurate....it could actually be 0, so somewhere between =to or > 0 and infinity...

In all honesty this is the truth of the matter.....not because I'm bullish or bearish, but it truly is unknown and unpredictable......

Every prediction is reliant on a million ifs, buts and variants.................

good luck punting.....

My tip is upwards, but Im only49.9% sure...

OK, found the prediction thread for the DOW year end 2009. Looks like the optimists had it.

That's quite a love affair with the 10,000 level!! How long did the love affair with Dow 1000 last? Was it about 15 or so years?

Happy New Year to all!

Something like that. Maybe longer! Same with DOW 100 I think?
