Thanks, Keith!!

I think that the markets might dip some more during September/October but still end the year perhaps 10 to 15 percent higher than where they are now.

Oil won't rise much from it's current level due to the weaker overall economy that many had figured on.

Gold--who knows???

As for the Canadian dollar, despite earlier lofty predictions that it would rise above par and stay there for some time, it always seems to manage to find it's way to below par which is probably just as well given the fragility of the Canadian economy right now which is growing at around a disappointing two percent--for now!!!:confused:

I wonder how many of the old '50 Plus' gang are still around reading this forum? Whatever became of my old nemisis, MoneyGuy?

One of the problems when a group disbands is that no other forum serves their needs quite like the one they were on. They disperse over a number of other choices.

I think that it was terrible the way that the administrators at 50Plus handled the entire matter.

Why would they want to destroy something that was working so well??

They never even bothered to respond to any of my emails asking them to explain why they did what they did and the way that they did it.

Sad!!

I think it was because Moses Znaimer wanted to turn it into a money maker (with Zoomers). He might have been right but time will tell. The whole Zoomers/CARP thing is questionable to me. It all about paid promotions.

Well, he certainly soured me on the whole Zoomers matter in the process. I will now stay clear of anything that he is involved with!!:mad:

Keith, when I win, do I get to chose what kind of vehicle I want?

Do you ever come across any of the other people who are in this contest?

You can't have a Lexus!

But you sure can choose exchange rates. And I can choose the price of gold!

As you can see from the latest results upthread, grampie has Cdn$ and TSX, oldbones has Dow and oil, while your truly still holds gold price. Snowman remains the overall leader.

Thanks, Keith!

Since we don't know where most of these participants are anymore anyway, why not just award the new car to me and be done with it!!??

It would be interesting to see if any of the other participants are around on this or other forums???

If you are, please let us hear from you.
