No idea where that thread is but I'm pretty sure my guess was 18,000.

I don't think there was one. I searched pretty thoroughly and didn't find a prediction thread for 2014. Just the one from 2013.
Where will the Dow be at on Dec. 31, 2013?

The DOW has come a long way since those early 2013 predictions!

Some excitement when DOW croses 17,000 mid-2014
17,000

Harry Dent for the win again!

His 2011 book goes on to suggest consumer spending will begin to plummet in 2012 with the Dow bottoming out somewhere between 3,000 and 5,600 in 2014.

and of course Peter Schiff's recommendations for 2014 were spot on:

Schiff’s recommendations for 2014.

He recommends that investors buy gold and get exposure to foreign markets in the new year.

I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that the Dow will end up between 5,000 and 35,000 for 2015.

It might end up there. But then again it might not.
