You know who is cementing his solid performance with a Gold in the last week just to rub our noses in it. Well done to Pat, just 2 points off the close in a wild week.
Atilla sneaks a Silver for the second time this quarter, and NickBK gets the Bronze!

With the S&P falling 25 points this week, here's to the Bears having their final fling.

postman started this thread Next up the quarterly prize which has been closely fought right up to the final week.

First place with 13 points NIckBk
In a photo finish second place goes to WackyPete with 12
And third place with 10 points Pingpong!

A sterling performance (more like S&P performance actually) for all three but NickBk gets the $100 prize.

postman started this thread What a year (and its only January 1st ).

Another crazy year has passed us by:
The deaths of musical legends.
The breakup of nations.
The birth of a new era in US politics and all the global ramifications that will have.

I sincerely wish you all the best for the fledgling year and hope you achieve what you set out to do. So take some time to think carefully about what that is.

Sayonara!

Final Results for End of Year 2016 - SPX Forecasting Competition.

Looking at results the two averages haven't done well at all this year. Weighted average is below mean average too so perhaps the weighting needs adjusting.

Also, this was the first year where we started deducting 1 point for wrong direction which I think has helped, giving the scoring more of an edge.

Looking at the stats it was not an easy year to forecast with 24 direction changes.

QTR1 _ Bull Weeks = 7 -- Bear Weeks 5
QTR2 _ Bull Weeks = 6 -- Bear Weeks 7
QTR3 _ Bull Weeks = 10 - Bear Weeks 4
QTR4 _ Bull Weeks = 6 -- Bear Weeks 7
----------------------------------------------
.......................29................23

Here are some pics showing last quarter and total running points for EoY and the year in charts; weekly CS for 2016.
