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 81.1% predicting Lower, and the Crowd Forecast Indicator prediction was 71% chance Higher; the S&P500 closed 2.75% Lower for the week. This week’s majority sentiment from the survey is 64.5% predicting Lower with a greater average confidence from those who are predicting Lower. Similar conditions have occurred 28 times in the previous 340 weeks, with the majority sentiment (Lower) being correct 43% of the time and with an average S&P500 move of 0.10% Lower for the week. Based on that history, the TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Indicator is forecasting a 57% Chance that the S&P500 is going to move Higher this coming week.
