Where Will The Dow Close Tomorrow?

(FINAL UPDATE AND BUMP: This contest is only open until 12pm Monday, Sept 15th.)

The winner receives a placement in my blog headline for a week. You know... up there where it says "Sex."

Also, if you're a fellow stock blogger, you'll get top linking placement (i.e. over "the Fly" for the next week as well, plus a daily pump). That should yield you at least 6 extra page views next week.

The closest guess wins.

NOTE: CNBC is doing some special reporting right now... they're currently talking about the $40 million that AIG is trying to raise... they're talking with Buffet. Leisman, Faber, Gasparino, Ratigan.... they're all there on a Sunday night.

NOTE II: They're showing film of employees taking their shit from Lehman Brothers' Headquarters.

NOTE III: The title of CNBC's Special Report is, "Is Your Money Safe?" Of course, if they're asking this question, you know the answer is, "no."

Steve Liesman, "You don't know that anyone tomorrow morning has a huge counter-party risk hole with Lehman... how can you make a single trade not knowing who has what exposure?" NOBODY KNOWS ANYTHING! NO ONE LIGHTENED THEIR EXPOSURE TO LEHMAN.

haha 11,001, just to smite The Fly?

The market would do that.

I guess down 4.20% in honor of ol' Jimmy "bluntz" Cayne.

That would be 10942.3.

Hell, why not.

They are gonna try their damn hardest to prevent my guess from happening though

Lots of contrarian types hanging around this blog, eh?

Remember this, LEH has been around for 150 YEARS. As Dylan explained, they got through the Great Depression, through a couple of world wars, etc...

This isn't part of any normal business cycle. This is a historic, big event.

HPT,

Barker never left the show. He just got younger and fatter.

Danny said...

YES YES YES YES.

Fuck anyone that guessed near me, you're dead.

HPT said...

Dam, Danny did win. I didn't think 4th tier bloggers votes counted?

Dinosaur Trader said...

And we have a winner... the third-tier blogger known as Danny.

Well done. Look for your prize to be on the site by tomorrow.
