TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Prediction: 59% Chance Higher

Details: Last week’s majority sentiment from the survey was 52.0% predicting Lower, and the Crowd Forecast Indicator prediction was 58% chance Higher; the S&P500 closed 0.93% Lower for the week. This week’s majority sentiment from the survey is 64.3% predicting Lower with a greater average confidence from those who are predicting Lower. Similar conditions have occurred 68 times in the previous 334 weeks, with the majority sentiment (Lower) being correct only 41% of the time and with an average S&P500 move of 0.37% 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.

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:

• Than you very much for this question yes it work like that due t to the way the market move
• FOMC
• qe
• LT Trend

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• I think the initial reaction to the corona virus was over quickly. Now we will enter a period of time where the market will be reacting to the economic effects of virus on the economy of several countries, especially the Chinese economy. While I try to remain optimistic, I have reserved some cash for bargain hunting, hedged some positions we wish to keep and allow more “room” in our put writing for a possible correction
• Many overbought stacks, some correction needed.
• markets are still wary of the impact of the corona virus
• vires
• People are concerned – that few in China will be allowed to go to their jobs in factories, producing their plastic pieces, etc. /// Maybe the world can apply some pressure to install scrubbers on factory smoke stacks, and implement humane work conditions for the masses. Pipe dreams allowed. /// Can the playing field ever be leveled?
• FED just won’t cut the virus is getting worse but there is nothing positive to boost the market when even low interest rates no longer prevent money from flowing out of the market / lower FED won’t lower and 30 year low on interest rates is no longer preventing an outflow of money from the markets
• China Flue totally out of control in China! Percentages getting higher, ratios moving up, not good!
• uncertainty
• Continue Friday’s reverse.
• corona sickness in more countries
• technicals + post Op-expiration
• Consolidation !
• The market is losing momentum. Virus headlines continue. More earnings reports to weigh on the market.
• With the coronavirus situation looking more like a pandemic, with numerous negative consequences, I can’t think of a reason to buy the market at this level. The S&P drop in July-Aug 2019 was 7%. The current drop has justification to be at least as much.
• Corona Virus finallt taking its toll

Question #4. What indicator influences your trading the most?

• I resist being an “indicator addict” but I do follow the common things we all know that industry people use such a 200 day M/A and shorter term M/A crossovers.
• bull/bear markets
• vwap
• interest rates dow
• MAs
• it is Forex trading
• earnings
• interest rates
• Support/resistance levels, MACD.
• In order: Price Action, Candlestick, Volume, EMA.
• Volume.
• Price action.
• Japaneese Candlesticks in the United States
• China’s manipulated market imploding in on itself. World events move too fast now, the GOV can’t control things much longer. No one will be at the Olympics – not even the athletes. The world’s spotlight is shining brightly on a flawed model, and the will of the people & progress can’t be held behind a curtain much longer. Alright, political rant is over >> have a great week guys.
• sma.


Question #5. Additional Comments/Questions/Suggestions?

• Thank you very much for this Thank you john peterson
• China Flue major spread in Italy. Raises concerns, eventually effect all of Europe. North American borders must tighten to NO travel beyond oceans!
• China is a few years away from big change.
