Best Predictions

What surprises me about the sample pages below (there are others that I did not include and do not plan to update the list), is that they are so numerous. If you do not believe me, then read some of the entries. Those marked with an asterisk (*) are especially good.


Worst Predictions

My worst prediction comes from securities I decide to trade, like the February 13 entry. I felt that since I was right so often, I might as well follow my own advice and make money at it. After I posted the note, I bought the ETF and promptly lost money. It is also interesting that the two worst predictions come from the same security, the Hong Kong ETF. This list is a representative sample only.
