Question #3. For your answer to Question #1, please share what specific reason(s) you think the S&P500 will be heading the direction you chose.

“Higher” Respondent Answers:

• first week of the month whem401k money flows in.
• On Weekly Chart Timeframe, I see an uptrend doji candlestic pattern at level of support
• Trade war is fake news at its obvious peak. The back and forth will continue to swing higher and lower wit a mean of generally higher. Gold and oil doing their dance for now.
• break above resistance
• I feel like the strength of the market has overcome a myriad of systemic obstacles
• good economic statistics
• Employment figures
• S&P bounced, and closed near its week’s high on Friday, helped by a positive jobs report. The momentum favors the bulls at this point.
• The good news that turned the market around last week will have a small but positive carry thru this coming week
• constructive pause, higher lows
• Weekly averages (DOW and S&P) have been moving slowly in an up direction.
• The market will never go down
• DIA trending turns up…

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• S&P500 is at the top of its recent range (~2700 – ~2740). If it breaks to the upside, then further gains can be expected. However, with trade war rhetoric back in focus, I’m looking for the S&P500 to stay range bound this week.
• Summer sell off began 2 weeks ago
• Trade Wars. US economy overheating and will cause oversupply.
• Sell in May and go away.
• The downside correction will not be complete until there is a selling climax. Just get me out.
• Erraticness of Administrations policies is starting to sink in andf it is NOT good for the markets
• poor momentum and breadth
• I believe the international trade conflict could have a bearish effect on the S&P
• Trump’s tariffs
• trading war

Question #4. Which indicator influences your trading the most?

• No one indicator on its own influences my trading. However, if I had to pick & use only one; I’d probably go with Stochastics.
• Volume
• Price action
• Fibonacci ratios
• News and earnings.
• Rsi7 and the nyse tick
• previous day’s change along with volume, particularly institutional
