Poll question: Here's a 50/50 bet for you
Edited on Tue Aug-09-11 07:49 AM by ThomWV
Yesterday the DOW Jones Industrial Average, a closely watched stock price indicator, dropped by over 600 points.

What will it do today?

I will find this poll and bring it back up to the top when the market opens, later this afternoon, and then right after the market closes. It should be interesting to see how accurately DU can predict the day.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

4. I guessed -250 yesterday. Today, before I saw this thread, I guessed it would hover around even.
An hour into trading it's up +191.

5. Well, it ended the day up 430 points - and 2/3 of DU thought it would be down today
At eight this morning two thirds of the people who had voted in this poll thought the market would be down at the end of the day. And here we are.
