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:

• 1 Cost 2 0.25 rate done
• Overall bullish attitude of the market
• Trade war smade war? Gold core ts into a buy zone. Why is silver on fire?
• Had a pull back and found support @ the 257.60 level, by the end of week should be about 285.00 level.
• History, and the economy.
• Low – High then a mid week low and then BTD ending slightly up
• Continued grind higher
• Dovish Draghi
• Breadth

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• Markets short term overbought & history suggests there is a > 50% probability that the market will be lower the week after triple witching.
• After obtaining “clarity” from FOMC, ECB, BOJ & G-7, we are still left wondering what it really means. After talks with NK, the imposition of tariffs by the US & others, we are wondering where this will go for earnings even if Q2 earnings coming up are good. The VIX is low but uncertainty is high.Tech supported the SPX last week so if it pauses, the SPX is certain to drop a little as it consolidates. There is little inspiration until NFP & earnings weeks away. M&A will help, otherwise down.
• The trade war is heating up and I think that every day will hold a negative surprise as a result.
• Whitehouse nincompoopery prevails.
• elliott wave
• sell in May and stay away
• weak buying
• The S&P couldn’t make it up to the March peak before it started to fade. The financials lack energy, and the tech stocks appear to be close to a peak.
• Trade war BS is totally counter productive and will hurt US industry and slow down the economy.
• The market is overbought and needs to have a downside correction.
• Tariffs Bollinger band snap back candlestick
• summer top fed will raise again
• Fear of trade tariffs and retaliation. That situation is volatile and can change at any moment.
• Trends down to support then up we go.
• trade war

Question #Which trading platform or broker do you like the best for executing your trades?

• Still looking. Most suck for options traders.
• thinkorswim
• Trade Station
• Schwab for stocks and options
• Bookmap
• Fidelity
• schwa
• i am unhappy with all of my brokers ALL OF THEM
• profitable ones
• e*trade
• Interactive Broker for my stock trades (can set up trades & go away) & tastyworks for options (best & most cost effective options trading platform out there).
• Sink or swim
• I like Fidelity but haven’t tried others
• E-Trade
• Interactivebrokers
• Ninja Trader & Firetip

Question #5. Additional Comments/Questions/Suggestions?

• The FBI IG report was incomplete. For example, Attorney #1 wasn’t named. I guess it was Horowitz himself. If not, name the parties. I give the writing a D- and that is generous. This is another example of the corrupt FBI. It’s like an episode of “24” where the bad guys are in power and there is nothing you can do, no place you can go to get justice.
• This is the week which which can be bearish but despite all bearishness it will end up higher even if it is not much.
