TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Prediction: 67% 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 60.0% Higher, and the Crowd Forecast Indicator prediction was 54% Chance Higher; the S&P500 closed 3.06% Lower for the week. This week’s majority sentiment from the survey is 75.0% Lower with a greater average confidence from those who responded Lower (this is the highest ever percentage of respondents predicting Lower in the history of this survey). Similar conditions have occurred 18 times in the previous 305 weeks, with the majority sentiment (Lower) being correct only 33% of the time and with an average S&P500 move of 0.49% Higher for the week. Based on that history, the TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Indicator is forecasting a 67% Chance that the S&P500 is going to move Higher this coming week.
