    FSU Fun: What will UMB$'s vCash balance be at 12/31/10?

    For fun: what will UMB$ Go Blue's vCash balance be at 11:59pm U.S. Pacific Time on December 31, 2010?

    I'll recuse myself from betting on this one.

    How much were you planning on losing?

    ETA: I was so busy laughing at your bet that I entered my amount wrong.

    Also might be a bit interesting since there are a couple of bets that depend on a year-end market close and, therefore, may influence the result depending on when I can settle these bets on the night of December 31. Further complicating this is the fact that I'll be in Berlin (6 hours ahead of US East Coast time) on December 31st, likely already at the time US markets close, and not within easy access of my laptop.

    Wondering if I should start new bets that don't settle until after 12/31 and would require me to bet more than 1,312,500 in vCash.

    That would just be mean to me because clearly I am the only one that matters here..

    No. A big to all the others who bet on 400,000,000+.

    And a big to all the others who dared underestimate me.

    Will you be my financial planner?
    In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.

    I actually made a killing in the stock market in the late 90s (who didn't?) in order to help pay for college. I paid for all my senior year tuition, board, and costs myself. The school I went to is also one of the most expensive in the nation.

    Unfortunately I haven't had as much mojo lately although I have made it through the last few rough years OK. Actually, I am still licensed to be a broker if I still wanted to, and I've also completed 2 of 3 years of the CFA program, an investment management certification.
