I was way off with 1804.63 last year. Let's see how it turns out with the same guess this year.

It was the hedge fund contest which closed this morning. This contest, guessing the S&P 500 value, doesn't close until the 10th. See the first page.

Because the bengals won 12 games and are in the playoffs for the fifth straight year, I think SP 500 will end year at 2143!
