“Higher” Respondent Answers:

• President Trump putting Americans to work!
• year-end rally
• Best six months of the year historically

• Unemployment
• historic.
• The robust jobs report should prompt the market to continue up, perhaps at a steeper climb.
• Earnings and Momentum
• fundamentals
• Correction over and into the Santa Rally

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• The economy in all stats is receding. The trade war will end with no winners, only losers. The job numbers are up, because 300,000 people are reaching the age 65 every month. The number of jobs is down over 25,000 each month. The wages are up because of the increases in the minimum wages. The stock market is up only because of stock buybacks by the companies.
• china will not make a deal that is acceptable
• Resistance
• It will always go up as FED and Treasury are supporting trump so that his calls and longs make billions for him plus to show of his treacherous popularity. Whatever we do this market is bound to forever go up and Trump n his billionaiore team is making a billion per week out of all. All our views or tech readings are worthless now. Trump is making his fortunes while he shows off how big he is. Fed is pumping billions each day so what stand shorts stand>
• Needs a 2nd leg down before a final new high, and then a collapse.
• Profit taking and tax loss selling will dominate the market.
• Global monetary issues.
