Guess the mid-year price of oil and gold!

Tuesday, April 08, 2008

Welcome to the fourth semi-annual "Guess the price of oil and gold contest" where readers can compete to win a free one-year subscription to the companion investment website Iacono Research. Past contests have produced the following results:
The last contest was won by VP who is now enjoying the benefits of the subscription site, hopefully benefiting from some of the recent upward price movements.
We're on our way out for a road trip or I might blather on a bit more on the subject. The rules remain the same - only the dates have changed.

The contest is based on the combined percentage differences between the guessed values and the closing prices on June 30th, 2008 using the near-month (August) Nymex futures contract for WTI crude oil and the COMEX closing price for gold bullion.

Entries may be made either by posting them in the comments section of this post or sending mail to either or All entries must be received no later than April 22nd, two weeks from today - there will be two more notices such as this one as reminders and current subscribers can win a free one-year extension to their existing subscription.

The winner will be announced on June 30th - good luck to all!


Here's our roadtrip for the next couple days - a mini-tour of the California Gold Country.

Not sure what, if anything, will appear here between now and Thursday.
