Nasdaq - Jan 13th 2006

Thanks to Jay for the following

Only on Jan 13, 2006 was the Nasdaq @ 2,317, S&P @ 1,287, and DOW @ 10,959 (off by 1). This day was chosen, and the non-standard ticker was created just for this show. As this info is stored in separate and distinct records (links below), it seems likely that this day was intentionally chosen, and this clue intentionally given to us (discretely). As the voice mail which just appeared from Sam’s mom indicates, we saw Sam watching “live” TV on Jan 13, 2006 rather than a recording.



NASDAQ: 2,317.04 (exact)

S&P: 1,287.61 (exact)

DOW 10,959.87 (off by $1.00) I’m curious why this is, as everything else is exact to the decimal.

I think it was just a detail they didn't give much tought but just threw in some older info...

Darks actually got this up from a few days ago. I remember finding this info on the 31st, but the most interesting bit I find about this and the call from mum... if they happen on Jan 13 2006, then how can he have the dec 31 2007 web page open for flyoceanicair.com on his laptop? Mr Leaf figured this out last night at LP and we've been scratching our heads ever since :p

No, that's old stuff. Those data have been changed. The video has new info. Check again and you'll see that now the data are:

NASDAQ: 2.316,06
S&P: 1.623,24
DOW: 8.424,15

I tried myself to figure which day matched those, but couldn't. Maybe anyone can?

check the ticker again - it's been changed!

Paula said...

the stock market values have been changed in the first part of the video, only when Sam is on do you see those values again....


Again, i think they didn't think it through and Sam is way before 2006,, reason why they changed the values...

I emailed DarkUFP about this a few hours ago. Good guy. The DOW and NASDAQ have been changed and are currently the "Lost" numbers. :)

And, since they have removed the volcano eruption charts from Sam's computer browser, they are now free to play with the dates a bit more.
All the best,

I think it's becoming clearer and clearer the time line of this game is from around October (a month after the crash) to November (when Cooper arrives on the island and tells Sawyer they found the 815 in a trench), 2004.

Matt said...

Don't forget, the market changes during the day. Are we looking at day ending values here or every change that occurred during the day?

Jack said...

Just a thought - Could they (TPTB) have reused graphic assets from a previous ARG, explaining the exact amounts, and also explainingwhy the dates would be from 2006 - perhaps that is when they created the original graphic asset for the ticker?

Everything else in this so far leads me to believe this happens a couple months after the crash in September 2004.

My suspicion is that this whole story is about Sam getting too close to the truth, and forcing Oceanic to fake the crash in the trench to satisfy Sam's driven curiousity. As said above, that would place this story to have happened prior to Naomi's arrival on the island.

I am guessing that the first episode will deal with this whole issue of flight 815 being found in a deep sea trench and this ARG is going to fill in the backstory as to how this could have happeneed.

Alvar Hanso states in the Sri Lanka video that the purpose of the DHARMA Initiative is to change the numerical values of any one of the core factors in the valenzetti equation (the numbers) in order to give humanity a chance to survive.

If the Dow number is off by one, does this mean that on Jan 13, 2006 the DHARMA Initiative was successful!

It is curious how they are being very careful not to publish dates in emails or anywhere else. Why not let us know if it is December 2004? There must be a reason why they are not being upfront about the time - the same way LOST is not always clear on time. It is also odd that they seem to keep slipping up on dates - ex: this ticker, the wrong newspaper date in the show etc.. I don't think the slip-ups are all accidents. I think it is a disinformation campaign designed to make it harder to figure out the timelines of LOST, as we know that time is an important part of the show - 'Only fools are enslaved by time and space...'

I have included this in some other post. In the pdf file you can download from oceanic airlines web site they include the date "December 28, 2007". Is it a mistake from them?
