TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Prediction: 65% 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 76.5% Lower, and the Crowd Forecast Indicator prediction was 68% Chance Higher; the S&P500 closed 0.63% Higher for the week. This week’s majority sentiment from the survey is 63.3% Lower with a greater average confidence from those who responded Lower. Similar conditions have occurred 20 times in the previous 307 weeks, with the majority sentiment (Lower) being correct only 35% of the time and with an average S&P500 move of 0.45% Higher for the week. Based on that history, the TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Indicator is forecasting a 65% Chance that the S&P500 is going to move Higher this coming week.

• Market top last week Will m0ve side to side
• Bonds are inverted, the market will fail for sure, Band-Aids will not hold it up. Gold & Silver will raise and people will rush to pull money out and find safety in Gold. More and more money is leaving the market. Billion dollar funds don’t know what to do as too much tied up in stocks, slowly , very slowly their liquidating positions before the major fall appears.
• Trade war is not stoped
