Guess the NASDAQ Close: $100 Prize!

Stock Trading 101 has started another stock guessing contest, this time he is offering a $100 cash prize for the person who guesses the EXACT NASDAQ closing price in 1 week. Simply leave a comment on this post with your guess!

How to Enter

Simply leave via a comment the price at which you think the NASDAQ composite index will close at on Friday of next week, the 27th of April 2007. To help you guess, here is a link to a chart of the NASDAQ from stockcharts.com. Entries MUST BE IN by this Sunday night, the 22nd of April by 9:00 PM EST, no exceptions! It is very simple, one number for your shot at $100 cash. (HINT: Wait until after closing today to make your guess).

Who is Involved

The last stock contest had 6 blogger communities participate, and this time we may end up with up to 10! Note though that you can only enter in on ONE community. So whether it is here or somewhere else, you can only make one guess!

Two Ways to Win

Blain will be pooling all entries across all blogs into an excel sheet, grouped by each community. The community with closest guess average overall wins points, and individually the closest guesses also win their community points. If you can correctly guess the NASDAQ close EXACTLY to the penny, I will personally send you $100 cash. And if you think it isn’t possible, guess again, because just last week Brandon was only off by only $.94!!

So go ahead, take a shot at guessing the NASDAQ close. Remember, you have until Sunday evening to submit your guess.
