TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Prediction: 65% 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 Lower, and the Crowd Forecast Indicator prediction was 77% chance Higher; the S&P500 closed 0.67% Lower for the week. This week’s majority sentiment from the survey is 73.1% predicting Lower with a greater average confidence from those who are predicting Lower. Similar conditions have occurred 26 times in the previous 331 weeks, with the majority sentiment (Lower) being correct only 35% of the time and with an average S&P500 move of 0.55% Higher for the week. Based on that history, the TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Indicator is forecasting a 65% Chance that the S&P500 is going to move Higher this coming week.

• Market is in downside correction. Additional Earnings reports and China to weigh on market.
• market due for another 5% decline
• Following Dow down through support
• coronavirus
• Corona virus Fear
• Well, who would have expected the developing situation involving Coronavirus but this could become the trigger for the onset of the next revession. That means either the stock markets take a sudden crash or a bear market could usher in this inevitable recession. You can never predict exactly when a recession will begin but with a capitalistic economy, you only have boom or bust periods. Capitalism has a way of being a violent economic philosophy, up or down. There is little middle ground. Until the inevitable downturn in the markets materializes, I am locked in the expectation that a downturn is coming. Fact is the markets have been acting irrational for sometime. The correction or crash is inevitable. I patiently wait.
• The needs been stampede awaiting a bottom chart formation / Market pullback to continue until CAPITULATION
• Based on S&P Global Market Intelligence
• January ended up down for the month because of Coronavirus and it will just get worse as the disease spreads.
• Short term trend
• Definitly the corona virus, threating global growth.
