NOTE: The following open-ended answers are solely the opinions of the anonymous respondents to this survey.

Some irrelevant responses (e.g. “none”), or anything obviously fake, or copy and pasted responses have been omitted. All-caps responses have been changed to all lowercase. All responses for each week, unedited, are available in the raw data spreadsheets at TimingResearch.com/data.

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:

• Bull Open Range
• FED buying the market indirectly.
• Markets will open partially
• Market will inch higher anticipating some positive news coming from stabilization of virus pandemic
• Why not go higher. I think people are tired of the china HK flue… The Greatest President since JFK, President of The United States Donald Trump will ensure Governor’s get workers back to work NOW!
• On track to recovery, especially since there are protests against lockdowns,
• We broke above 50% retracement. If that holds on the 3 major indexes, we are going higher.
• Mkt is very low now

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• rise of this week will profit take by end of week as people realize opening U S is too early
• selloff early then rebound may close slightly higher but so what Market to seesaw until further notice
• I’ve got to be right at sometime :)
• got to be right sometime.
• market temporarily overbought
• the markets took a big dive down then went up for no apparent reason
• Too far, too fast
• It looks like the next S&P Fibonacci level is about 2930 (1.9% up from now), likely the next major resistance. That could occur soon. Consider the negativity of these: 2nd quarter GDP could drop 38% (Morgan Stanley), unemployment could rise to 32% (St L Fed), and retail sales down 8.7% in March.
• Many overbought indicators need a breather. Oil is not going to get better anytime soon and they might have to stop pumping or risk not having anywhere to put barrels. Still lots of slow down economy out there for a while.
