    Call The Close: Party Like It’s One More Than 1999

    It’s record setting time down on Wall Street, with the S&P500 crossing the 2000 mark at about 10:40 this morning and hitting an all-time high of 2001.94 about a half-hour later, before doing what major stock indices always do when broaching new ground and taking a few steps back, safely below the big, scary number.

    Analysts Attempt To Call The JPMorgan (Second Quarter) Close

    Despite Jamie Dimon’s promise that JPMorgan will be “solidly profitable” for the quarter, some are skeptical given the growing estimates of Whale-boy’s losses. According Mike Mayo, the bank “will only make $727 million…including $4 billion of losses in the unit that made the bungled bet [though] if the losses exceed $5 billion, JPMorgan could make an overall loss.” Barclays’ Jason Goldberg thinks things are gonna be okay here, and sees the bank making $3.3 billion, assuming you know who will have only lost it $3 billion when all is said and done. And yourselves?

    Start considering your predictions now, as come July 13, there will be a visit from the Sandwich Fairy and a coveted bath toy for whoever comes closest without going over.

    Call the Close. . . Bull Market Edition

    Since we did two of these when the markets were in a tailspin last week, we though it only fair to ask you to guess the close when all early indications point to a big triple digit gain. We’ll see if those fat fingers and high-frequency trading systems have the same impact on the way up. Dow futures were up as much as 400 early this morning. . .we’ll give a shout out to the winner at the end of the day. Ready, Go!
