I thought it might be a bit of fun to speculate where the FTSE 100 will close at the end of the year.
I've had e-mails from a spread betting company that are running a promotion based around the same question but I thought it might be fun to run the same question here. Unfortunately I'm not able to offer a prize to the winner. The only thing you will have is gloating rights.
So the question is "Where will the FTSE 100 close on 31st Dec 2010?". The site we will use for the price will be Yahoo Finance
. I doubt any one will guess it on the nose so it will be the closest to the price over or under that will win.
How I said it's just a bit of fun. You only get one guess and your first guess will be your only guess. No editing your post the near to the date we get.
You can post as much or as little detail about your guess as you like.
I'm going to take a look at the chart now and will post my guess shortly.
The competition closes on the 29th of December. I think if we leave it any longer it will not be fair. Any entries posted after the 11:59pm on 29th December will not be counted.
May the markets be with you!
