The Official DOW and S&P, 2015 Prediction Thread

Currently looks like the DOW will finish in the 18000 area and the S&P 2000 at the end of 2014.

Where will the indexes end up at the end of 2015 ?

What say the wise sages of the ER Forum ?

I could never be mistaken for a wise sage but I will say DOW at 19,500 on Dec 31, 1015

Where ever it ends up, I'm predicting that there will be some wild rides in between.

After a couple of 10+% corrections it will finish at 20570.

This is fun. I'm going to play the contrarian and say 16,800 for the DOW and 1,978
for the S&P, but just wait for the rocket ride of 2016!

I'm thinking Dow 16,000.
For anyone who follows Martin Armstrong the economy is supposed to start going to heck in the 4th qtr of 2015.

Isn't this true of every year?

2014 was the year that all predictions were wrong

I have no idea but am an optimist. I am guessing around 20,000 with some bumps along the road. I suspect it will go higher still before a major, longish lasting correction.

Just closest. No penalty for going over.
