Final standings are on page 10: Predict the 12/31/2014 market prices.

Predict where the markets will be one year from now!

To be eligible for the Grand Prize at the end of the year, you must make a prediction in each of the categories below. You can choose to not make a prediction in some of the categories and still be eligible to win the individual categories you do predict but not the overall championship.

Winners in individual categories will be decided by having a prediction with the smallest deviation from the actual 2014 year end prices. The overall winner will be determined by having the smallest average deviation from actual prices for all the categories below.

All predictions must be posted by 8:00 PM, January 12, 2014 and no edits to predictions after that date are allowed.

ETA: We will use the market data provided by the CNBC website for our prices.

The prediction categories and their 12/31/13 values are:

DowJones 30 Average: 16,576.66
S&P 500 Index: 1,848.36
NASDAQ: 4,176.59
Japan Nikkei Index: 16,291.31
Apple Computer (AAPL): $561.02
Euro/$: $1.3756
10 YR Bond Yield: 3.036%
30 YR Bond Yield: 3.976%
Gold/Oz: $1,205.20
Silver/Oz: $19.52
Oil/barrel (WTI crude): $98.62
Natural Gas/'000 cubic ft: $4.248
Wholesale Gasoline/gal: $2.7896

I'll be making my predictions in a follow-up post.

Good luck everyone!

Yeah. I'm playing. Mostly shots in the dark though. But that's usually when I have the most fun with these things.

Lot of shots in the dark here. Feel like Apple is going to regress a bit. Metals make a slight comeback after being all over the map the entire year. Overall up year but not like this past year.

Guess something! Otherwise you won't be included in the overall standings at the end of this year.

Just put today's starting value if nothing else.

The Dow will be slightly lower than today as a lot of economists say this bull run will slow down. What this means for you? Buy blue chip stocks, let those dividends compound, and enjoy the ride.
