TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Prediction: 78% Chance Higher
This prediction is an attempt by the editor of this newsletter to use the full 5 year history of data collected from this project to forecast a probability estimate for whether this week’s sentiment is going to be correct and ultimately what the markets will do this coming week.

Details: Last week’s majority sentiment from the survey was 57.5% Higher, and the Crowd Forecast Indicator prediction was 56% Chance Higher; the S&P500 closed 2.10% Higher for the week. This week’s majority sentiment from the survey is 51.7% Lower with a greater average confidence from those who responded Lower. Similar conditions have occurred 9 times in the previous 299 weeks, with the majority sentiment (Lower) being correct 22% of the time and with an average S&P500 move of 0.73% Higher for the week. Based on that history, the TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Indicator is forecasting a 78% Chance that the S&P500 is going to move Higher this coming week.

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:

• Due to the China/US trade war, SPY will go higher
• wave 5 ends in July
• short squeeze
• No reversal yet. Market trading the good news.
• option friday expiration over. short term down then up without macro news
• all time highs broken
• MO & optimism re China trade deal
• RSI on daily H4 and H1 are motoring long in sync. Daily does show divergence but could continue to the end of the month.

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• Look of the chart – climactic top needs downside correction.
• Once the DTrump and Pres Xi talks are over and DTrump stops tweeting manipulatively motivated predictions that rarely ever occur , I believe the recent gains will begin to fall away. I do not expect a crash but as the reality sets in surrounding the phenom of DTrump tweets done to cause the market to go up, eventually the emperor will be exposed as “having no clothes”/substance. Once this takes root, the market, much of its upward momentum being unwarranted, is likely to readjust downward
• Failure of agreement of trade war at g30
• overbought
• After this week, we are due for a consolidation !
• weakening momentum
• Market held up correction occurs as summer sets in
• contrarian
• Market tippy 1 more FED rate cut keeping market up temporarily
• Negatives – Inverted yield curve, tariff wars, S&P earnings vs. previous quarter may be negative. G20 summit coming up – not expecting much,
• Market is overbought and looking tired. Some downside action is needed.
