Forecasts

My August bet was 1275.  My September bet was 1285.  My October, November bet was 1295, my December bet reached 1300, more or less.

My Dow was 12,250 to 12,300 to 12,500 max.

1257 and 12,220. 

Not too bad for a non professional.  All of the Barrons' gurus except for one had 1300 and up, only one had 1250-60.

I am surprised they did not maintain the close above 1260.
