Are we counting 6969 as a guess?

My guess is only 250 points above yours.
I'm obviously bullish for 2022. My reason being inflation, covid tapering/ normalizing, and possibly mid terms adding some spice to the market end of year.

I mean, we can easily go the other way for all of these factors as well. And we're coming off a good year and half already. But yea, idk. I think inflation is the biggest reason we'll see the numbers get bigger.

So yea maybe you'll be rich as fuck ... if you don't consider spending $50 for a loaf of bread
It's not about points but percentage. I went with 20% -ish which was the 2020 return. You number would equate to this year's return again more or less. As I said I would love it, but I think 6k is a reach.

I posted that thought several months ago. That you'd hope the assets rich people have would make them even richer, and since I also own those assets, hopefully it works out.

I guess we'll see.

I'm amazed that everyone has the market being positive for the year.

We just had a 27%, 18%, and 29% span of years.

Unless everyone collectively believes the new CAGR of the market is like 15-20%, we're due for a negative year.

my guess won't likely happen at all but it's a bit of things...

1. my guess is high enough there isn't much competition from other guesses
2. market is forward looking and politics at the end of 2022 can make things very interesting
3. during 2020, even after the COVID drop in march, the market ended 2k points higher than pre-covid
4. I am hoping 2022 sees an end to COVID mandates, masks, etc by 3rd qtr
5. Inflation means numbers go up across the board

So... yea, lots of reasons I think the market will be up. But due to inflation, buying power will still not be significantly higher - if at all.

Rules of contest are simple, you must PM me your pick prior to the end of the year to be included and the closet pick to the final level of SPX at 22 year end wins. Custom badge/medal is being worked on, hope to have that soon.

This is for SPX (S&P 500 index) not SPY so should be four digit number. To avoid ties probably shouldn't pick round numbers but you are certainly free to (4702 en lieu of 4700 etc) .
