UBC Election Market Final Update
Liberal Plurality: 200 shares at approximately $10. (Pays $200 if they form government. $0 if they don't. Don't expect them to win, but the odds are good enough to try.)
Minority Gov't (Either party): 194 shares at approximately $175 dollars. I was going to sell if the shares neared $0.95/share this weekend, but it's clear they won't. There's about 10% of growth left in the stock, so I'll probably hold until E-night now. If it's a minority, the extra $19 bucks offsets some of the long shots. If a majority does hit, the longshot offsets the loss here.
From a purely financial standpoint, a Liberal minority would pay me off rather well this election.
Overall thoughts on the market...Not bad, but there just wasn't enough movement in this election to really make any real loot. I made a little off the Greens early, but lost out when the Tories dropped in the last ten days. (Never would have predicted it quite honestly.)
Oh well, I'll be putting another couple hundred in to play when the next one happens in spring 2010.
