Obviously any prediction would have to take that into account.

In fact, there could be a bit of gaming. If it looks like you've made a prediction earlier than the trend, you can always make some controversial post and stir up the lurkers to comment. Or just say "I think Joe's guess for next month was too pessimistic."

    Indeed. Set a date/time and then game the forum to make it fit the prediction. (It's the only way to go:))
