Looking forward

Now that we have all reviewed 2006 with all of those top 10 lists, it is time to look forward. Some believe that markets are the best way to predict the future. Intrade is an exchange to trade (speculate on) events that directly affect your life, like politics, entertainment, financial indicators, weather, current events and legal affairs. These are known as "prediction markets." Traders buy and sell contracts based on what they predict for the future. Take a look to see what the predictions are for NYC snowfall or the 2008 Presidential candidates.
