Ezana, winner of the previous contest, comes in second place with a guess of $3,220.
Ulisse, are you about? You won 0.01 BTC!
Ulisse made a late bet; only Ezana and blackbootz deliberated longer. (goobster and flagamuffin missed the deadline.) It was quite interesting to see how the index dipped into Ulisse's winning range ($4360 to $8249.50) on May 22 and never left. By mid-September the index began hovering around $6300, the approximate midpoint of the winning range. Volatility continued to diminish, and the index stayed within a $100 band from Monday to Thursday this week, ending at $6306.6296 yesterday, less than two dollars away from the exact midpoint of Ulisse's winning range!
