Our competition to win 20ozs of Endeavour Silver has now come to an end with the last trade and winning number being $0.85 as shown on the table below.
The winner is, wait for it, patience is a virtue, we're sure that your Mum must have taught you that when you were young, oh all right then, here we go:
The winner, being first with the correct entry is 'Jerry' with a spot on guess/estimate/calculation of $0.85 being the last trade on Friday for the Endeavour Silver Corporation (EXK) May series, Call Options with a strike price of $10.00.
There were others who arrived at the same conclusion, however, as the rules go, first up, best dressed.
We hope that you enjoyed this tiny bit of light relief from the hectic world we live in and hope that Jerry can find a nice place to display his hard won prize.
We would also like to say a mega THANK YOU to Hugh Clarke, VP Corporate Communications and all of the team over at Endeavour Silver Corporation for playing their part in this bit of fun, by providing us with the prize of 20ozs of silver all the way from their own mines in Mexico.
It was interesting to see such a wide range of estimates for a competition of such a short duration, which just goes to show how volatile things are just now. Our own in-house instinct was that a much higher price would take the prize. But then, those who make the rules changed them regarding the margin requirements for trading silver – bang in the middle of our competition!!!!! some people have no sense of decorum.
So, that's it from us, but stay tuned as the next competition includes no less than four empty bottles of Merlot and a ticket for a night in at your house.
