Never completely trust Bill Gates. Did you add the percent numbers manually and divide by 9 to see what you get? I'm predicting you won't get what the AVGDEV function results are.

I think I am safe as long as I'm not logged in but if someone can see my name, let me know please.

I've never used it. I noticed years ago that the financial function for computing duration is a little off, too. Since then I always hand compute at least one range of cells to double check Bill Gates' math.

He predicted \$65.00 and the actual this minute is \$31.86 for a deviation of -104.02%. Yeah, it's been a little disappointing, but I have faith that silver will exceed the measly \$65 when the over decade long bull market executes its spectacular blow off bubble. When? I'd give it 2-5 years. It's possible the spot price of silver will go even lower as the end of the year approaches. Wont' bother me since I'll be cost averaging more physical bullion into my possession.
