looks like an missinginaction creator.

2011 can be closed out. Also, this is a pretty boring market if it can no longer be traded — where’s the predictive ability of that? We can’t even close out our positions if we no longer want to play, but have to wait for annual payments or for the event to happen.

Is there any reason why some state would do this to the cigar but not to the cigarette?

Also, please define the word “commercialization” — does this have a different meaning from the word “sale”?

KCruel   •   Sat Nov 12 2011 at 04:18pm PST

No, it means sale!

Is a December 31,2011 suspense date realistic with a 2016 or after, option?

KCruel   •   Sat Nov 12 2011 at 04:20pm PST

You right! If we could do again maybe the best would be say until 2012 Dec, 31, then other otpions.

As the creator of the market you can change the end time of it. Just click on the Admin tab on the question page and you can then go through the question in order to change some of the settings. You just have to remember to save any of the changes that you make.

historical trend

Click on possible answers in the right column to hide/show them on the graph. You can also hover over any line to see current value at that time. Graphs will begin to show data one hour after the question has been open. The Historical Trend chart does not display all prices ever reached since it is only updated at discrete time intervals, (hourly/daily/weekly, depending on the date range).
