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 individual category medals. Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals will be awarded for each category plus an overall 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners for Best Overall predictions.
Winners in individual categories will decided by having a prediction with the smallest deviation from the actual 2013 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 January 10, 2013 and no edits to predictions after that date are allowed.
