Based on the guesses so far, the average Boglehead is predicting a 2.2% increase in the S&P500 this year.
(The red line shows the 2017 starting value for the S&P500.)
Seriously though, it is interesting to see where our collective darts are being thrown. I see a bit of a bald spot near the red line itself (indicating that people or generally guessing a move upwards or downwards, not towards neutrality), which might make for a bit of a camel-backed distribution (i.e. two humps instead one one).
