    if Mr. Bonderer will resubmit his entry, we didnt get it for some reason. Also, anyone who wants to join our spec list and contribute and receive about 20 incoming email a day should contact Linda at 203 840077 and give us an email so we can put you on. Also, if there are any mistakes or clarifications in the contest that we should know about do let us know. vic

    when you first posted the contest, don’t know date, i responded with my entry:

    Short 10-year JGB on that day

    then,

    you had a post on the rules, and then another post where a whole bunch of people entered their trade entries. at that post i ‘clarified my entry’ by saying something like:

    Short 10-year JGB at a price to yield 1.11% and cover on 12/31/11. the 1.20s of 12/20/20. go with the date when you first announced the contest, whatever that was.

    How do we sign up to join this contest and what are the rules and processes for submitting forecasts?

     [Ed.: regrettably the contest is from Dec 31, 2010 to Dec 31 2011, so it is too late to join. Sorry.].
