TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Prediction: 68% 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 75.0% Lower, and the Crowd Forecast Indicator prediction was 67% Chance Higher; the S&P500 closed 0.71% Higher for the week. This week’s majority sentiment from the survey is 76.5% Lower with a greater average confidence from those who responded Lower (for the 2nd week in a row, this is the highest ever percentage of respondents predicting Lower in the history of this survey). Similar conditions have occurred 19 times in the previous 306 weeks, with the majority sentiment (Lower) being correct only 32% of the time and with an average S&P500 move of 0.51% Higher for the week. Based on that history, the TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Indicator is forecasting a 68% 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:

• A crisis was averted rates are low nowhere else for money to go as bonds are t00 l0w
• Republican primary
• History

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• Due to the tariffs imposed to China and President Trumps’ extension to China there is no telling which way the market will go. I play the SPY only with calls and puts and personally I don’t care which way the market goes.
• Heading into minor then major pullback
• Need to keep the public scared for a longer period of time than usual! Funnel top formation on monthly chart, weak Andrew’s pitchfork reaction on weekly chart and 50% retrace on daily! Long-term much higher because of hyperinflation by the world central banks! XRP, USLV, DBA and BRZU all will appreciate hundreds of percent long-term, while using leverage well over a thousand percent!
• I am evenly divided at 50%. Currently, uptrend on the hourly time frame Index charts, but neutral to lower on the daily over the next week
• tech analysis
• S&P to much high
• charts show further correction and seasonal rise not till october
• seasonality
• 200 day sma should be tested
• return to end of wave 4
• The downside correction continues. More pain and suffering needed to complete the final flush.
• Down move overdue.
• The move down that ended on Aug 5 was on the highest volume of 2019. This appears to be the primary trend. The current bounce could establish a lower high soon.
• erratic movement
• It finally may be that time where traders and investers may have begun to question the loftiness of the stock market and realize an adjustment downward is the only realistic trend setting up. Now, if only D Trump would stop trying to manipulate the market higher. Past efforts on his part are beginning to backfire because for all his exxagerated claims, you simply can’t trust anything he says and all he ends up doing is setting the market up to correct ever so often. Investor’s are wising up
• Last week action market rotation will continue until next FED cut
• DCB over
• Consolidation then a fall at the end of the week
• general risk-on conditions
• We were left at an inflection point last Friday. Daily RSI is falling, H4 RSI was the retrace last week. As the H4 RSI turns lower the same direction as the Daily we will head lower with more speed in Price action
• bear trap, divergence in market internalj
