11/9/12 Contest

Hi Turdites,

With regards to:

""The Hat Contest. Let's have three this time. Since 11/11/12 is a Sunday, let's go with the 11/9/12 closing prices of the Dec12 silver, the Dec12 gold and the Dec12 crude.

There will likely be three, separate winners but, if anyone can catch lightning in a bottle and predict all three, I'll fish a silver eagle out of the pond out back and pass it along, too. I'll clearly need some help with this so I'll need a volunteer to compile all the guesses on a spreadsheet. (This kind person gets a hat, too.)

So, have at it. Let's use the comments of this thread for the guesses. I'll close the thread tomorrow morning when I post the next update.""

I'll post the list of all predictions once thew contest closes, and we figure out how to address all the multitude of duplicate predictions.

Also here, for your viewing pleasure:

~ I separated peckerwood, Kuchek, and tmosley from the herd - their numbers were messing up the average - they are still on the list at the bottom though!

Also the POST order is pretty close to the order in which you made guesses - but it is just an auto-generated number from the database, so a few will be out of the posted order.

Some sweet guesses! I'll be happy if the averages are correct!

Contest predictions list

Well folks, here is the list of predictions as it stands right now.

There are many, many duplicate predictions, and the formatting I used in Excel to highlight them won't paste into the table here. So, if your prediction turns out to be correct, better check to see if anyone called it before you did.

This table is in the same order as the postings on the original thread.

Since some still doubt my infallibility, please inbox me if you see any errors or discrepancies, and I will do my best to resolve them.

Minor correction

chinaaussiedoll had amended her gold price prediction to $1,814.14 shortly after her original post. The list above shows her twice, as I neglected to edit her first gold price, then remove the second entry. No one predicted gold at $1,814.14 prior to that second post (or after).
