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:

• trend
• Toppy, Market tippy FEd d0ne l00sening
• Chart and seasonality
• Option Expirations Week
• The market is melting up because of FOMO and many companies reporting better than expected earnings and forward guidance. I also think we’ll continue to melt up thru the end of the year with 3300 S&P in sight.
• The trend continues

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• The market may have a resistance
• Reversion to the mean of the trend
• China, Iran, Fed
• momentum is starting to roll over. Earnings reports are slowing down.
• Overbought, overvalued, low volumes, and reduced momentum.
• WE AR 5+% ABOVE 50DMA ==usually an area to be cautious of drop or pullback
• We all know it will only be up as long as trump keeps playing his china story. I still think it must go down and lower than this week
• Because of impeachment hearings
• No reason – that’s why my confidence is only 50%. More specifically – there are SO many fundamental as well as technical reasons – but none of those reasons have stopped the uptrend yet.
• Momentum from last week to be reversed.
• The S&P has reached its top trend line and Bollinger band top. It may move up a bit, but heavy resistance at 3100; so downward it should go.
