TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Prediction: 52% Chance Higher
This prediction is an attempt by the editor of this newsletter to use the full 6+ 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 51.5% predicting Higher, and the Crowd Forecast Indicator prediction was 64% chance Higher; the S&P500 closed 0.16% Lower for the week. This week’s majority sentiment from the survey is 65.5% predicting Higher with a much greater average confidence from those who are predicting Lower. Similar conditions have occurred 25 times in the previous 327 weeks, with the majority sentiment (Higher) being correct only 52% of the time but with an average S&P500 move of 0.51% Lower for the week. Based on that history, the TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Indicator is forecasting a 52% 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:

• Most indicators are positive and I believe that the Iran issue will not be a factor since it didn’t effect the market this last Friday.
• trend
• The general direction up to elections is higher. However Brexit, China-trade and other possibilities with countries may create choppy waves. Professional and institutional traders are back from vacations so they’ll be looking for the next big buys.
• Best six months of year historically
• Trump is in the White House!
• I think the Sp500 needs to be high
• 5G
• wave 5 still continues
• The world will understand that we are not the same country Obama ruined, but rather one “that does what it says it will do.”
• Technicals
• Jan affect
• rebound

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• Trend up continues
• MiddleEasturest
• conflict with Iran
• Threats from Iran and other middle eastern terrorists create market uncertainty. Perhaps a retaliatory strike against the US or allies ratchets up the possibility of a more heated conflict.
• tension in golf
• Unease with geopolitical situation re: Iraq/Iran/USA
• Trend in US D0llar d0wn
• Iran and weak nations complaining.
• It was a fine leg up from early October to very recently. Now, it’s time for some retracing, given all the uncertainty, an appropriate time for profit-taking, and a MACD negative divergence.
• world in turmile

Question #5. Additional Comments/Questions/Suggestions?

• I think the trades is going to be good
• Will be an exciting 1st week i suspect :)
• I predict a new breed of criminal is developing, and they no longer wear white collared shirts. Though, those criminals do still exist > they will be forced to submit, once nobody is interested in their game anymore. /// We are changing fields/venues >> and the old guard is not invited. Glad they could skim our billions while it was working, but now nobody wants to listen to their bought politicians. // Just read where John McAffee wants to put jerseys on them, representing the corporations they are beholden to >> just like Nascar does. I think this all hilarious >> and I hope someone read through this diatribe for the fun of it. // In reality, I don’t think there’s 40 years left ..we’ve spoiled what was given to us, all in the name of pride and greed. Thanks!!
