TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Prediction: 77% 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 59% chance Higher; the S&P500 closed 0.77% Lower for the week. This week’s majority sentiment from the survey is 69.2% predicting Lower with a greater average confidence from those who are predicting Higher. Similar conditions have occurred 13 times in the previous 330 weeks, with the majority sentiment (Higher) being correct 77% of the time but with an average S&P500 move of 0.47% Higher for the week. Based on that history, the TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Indicator is forecasting a 77% Chance that the S&P500 is going to move Higher this coming week.

Question #4. What procedures do you use for trade management?

• risk
• stops
• Stop Loss
• support / resistance
• Stop sell or buy back loss orders
• Usually about equal levels spread over several stocks.
• Trail using moving averages
• Stop loss
• I am still looking for a good trading-journal, that fits my needs…. I still did not find that. Then I need to grow a tiny account to a bigger one, which makes trade management possible. You need at least a few couple of thousand bucks to make tradde Management possibl, right? You can´t do that with a 1k-account. After reaching a mangable trade size of 2-3k then there is it makeable to hold on managemnet-rules as 1-2% max.risk per trade. For all that I still need a trading-journal to track my trades first…
