Question Contest, iPad Update, RSS and Twitter

by Bill McBride on 2/26/2012 09:23:00 PM

• For fun I've added a monthly question contest on the right sidebar. It takes a Facebook login right now. The contest has two parts: 1) every day, before 9:30 AM ET, you can enter whether you think the S&P 500 will be up or down that day, and 2) I'll ask some economic predictions (for March 1st, I'm asking: Will light vehicle sales increase in February compared to January?)

Contestants receive 1 point for each correct answer (either stocks or economic predictions). At the end of the month, starting in March, I'll list the leaders in a post on the blog. For February, I'm the leader (just a few friends entered). Hey, play along and beat CR!

• iPad layout. Based on feedback, I've switched the iPad layout back to the standard blog layout. For those who liked the touch layout, use this URL

• RSS Feed: For those interested, here is the RSS feed for Calculatedrisk.

• on Twitter @calculatedrisk (My family friend Sasha Cohen, Olympic skater, economics student at Columbia and future hedge fund manager is on twitter @SashaCohenNYC)

Join the contest - beat CR!
