2777.17 Official Selection. Any way to remove a posting in the spreadsheet? Upon further review of other postings I noticed someone had the same selection so I posted a new one in order not to match them.

My guess based on 1980 and 1985 is 3529.17.

Some may call this a wild guess unworthy of a place on the chart, but I’ll stick with it.

Good luck.

Edited to add that the entry is also entered in the contest spreadsheet.

A wild guess, but late stage bull markets tend to provide the highest gains.

Form is a great change, thanks. I may have inadvertently submitted two entries with my user name, hope that does not screw up your system. My apologies if it causes issues.

You can guess "over" and still win -- it is "closest to the mark" that counts.

^^^ I don't see you in the spreadsheet. Refer to the first post for the instructions.

You need to post your entry in the spreadsheet. Posts here are to confirm that the entry was really you.

FYI - We already have several entries of 3000.0. The first entry is on 12/31/2017. Later entries won't win anything.
