Well, gilgal, 1 cent off of the exact price and 1 cent off of keeping the trend. Guess you are just one of those trouble-makers. ;)

Thanks again, Meili, for keeping track of the guesses each week.

The prices are bouncing around a lot lately. Whence cometh this volatility?

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ignored. Second, it is skewed all out of proportion. Third, it stagnates due to complacency, opposing interests, and lack of funding.

You didn't read the fine print for this contest. Here it is again:
The contest organizer asserts his ultimate and irrefutable authority to give silver to whomever he wishes at any time and for any reason.

Doesn't the week fly by so quickly? It's already Thursday which means the final guesses are due within 3 hours and 52 minutes.

Jehovah organized the elements and what a fantastic job He did on Ag. Currently, the price for an ounce of that shiny goodness is $16.61 making brlenox the closest. Will there be any big moves overnight and tomorrow?
