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:

• Economic reasons maybe I think some
• For the 2nd week in a row it’s been going up. keep going up baby!!!
• Higher oil prices and the continued increase o small cap stocks.
• Historically best six months
• Broke resistance and should be testing close to the all time high .. Volume is low and there is not much conviction after breaking resistance .. So it is a 2 blade knife .. but the bias so far is still to the Upside.
• Seasonality as researched by Norman Fasback in the early 1990s back to 1927 which showed that ALL of the market’s gains occurred on the last 2 trading days of the old month and the first 10 trading days of the old month! The rest of each month netted 0! Next week has trading day #6 – #10 for April. High probability, NOT guaranteed!

• weak trend will continue.
• go with the trend…until it ends

“Lower” Respondent Answers:
