September 03, 2010 – Comments (29) | RELATED TICKERS: DOW

Since were in the 4th qtr. of 2010. I thought it might be fun to run a simple contest.

What will the Dow be at on Jan 1, 2011?

The only incentive I can offer is I personally will go back and retroactively rec all of the winners blogs. And maybe anyone who enters will do the same (which would seem fair, just sayin' losers : )

So the rules are simple the Fool that comes closest to the the Dows closing number on new years day will be the winner.(yes I know the markets not open then,but I think you catch my drift)

Entries will be eligible until market open on tuesday

I'll do a follow up blog on 1/1/11 (cool numerology :)

And heres my prediction- 11,101.

Fool on.

But will drop sharply to Dow 0 by Dec. 21 2012.

So everyone put on your tin foil hats.

I prognosticate that the DJIA will be in the vicinity of 10,776 for New Year's Day, and that a major volcanic eruption will occur somewhere in the solar system between now, and July 4, 2076.  I am very certain that at least one of these predictions will be correct.

lemoneater If I average that out it comes to 12,697, so thal'll be your prognostication. In the official rules of this contest located at the library of congress under the heading of Foolish stuff to do on a weekend it clearly states only one pick per Fool : )

Fair enough. I couldn't decide between fibonacci and a piece of pi so your solution of 12,697 is perfect. Wouldn't it be funny if the Dow goes there January 1st!

Having a divided government is likely to make people hopeful we repeat the 1990's.

Oh and wanted to add-

uclayoda87's

pick of 10101.01 stands.

I thought it was funny to try to predict in fractionals, but I now realize that this is a valid guess.

One more note.

VExplorer

Pick stands at 10,000.

I was born at night, but not last night :)

As far as I can tell uclayoda87 only entered one pick as I see no other Star Wars or LOTR names, so the pick stands. (please correct me if I'm wrong)

Dude, why did'nt you just stick with FCX in the ChimpContest, it was a solid pick which should stand on it's own merits.

Shennanagins were not in order.
