TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Prediction: 59% 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 69.2% predicting Higher, and the Crowd Forecast Indicator prediction was 65% chance Higher; the S&P500 closed 1.79% Higher for the week. This week’s majority sentiment from the survey is 69.2% predicting Higher with a greater average confidence from those who are predicting Lower. Similar conditions have occurred 34 times in the previous 329 weeks, with the majority sentiment (Higher) being correct 58.8% of the time but with an average S&P500 move of 0.002% Higher for the week. Based on that history, the TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Indicator is forecasting a 59% Chance that the S&P500 is going to move Higher this coming week.

• It’s up soo much. Probably consolidates her for awhile until it decides which direction it wants to move based on economic data. If numbers keep coming out positive then it will move higher. Technically it hasn’t broken any of my moving averages, so can’t say it will move higher.
• profit taking
• I know it will be higher as TRUMPs men mnuchin and his group is using Feds flood of cash to buy buy buy. They are destroying the market even though nobody real seems to be buying
• Market is short term overvalued driven by extreme complacency and greed on part of the traders. Hence, the market is overdue for a pullback or at least consolidation.
