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:

• Money Flowing in with nowhere else to go.
• People will be going back to work
• Why not? Nothing makes any sense so why shouldn’t it go higher?
• Because I’m short
• party on Garth deal with the reality of detiorating fundamentals
• momentum
• The FED’s manipulation
• Investors are still putting their money into the Fed-will-boost-the-economy game, lifting the S&P toward its next resistance at about 3000. At this time, the market is ignoring reality, which is that the Fed can’t cause the full-economy volume of people to book vacations or dine in restaurants when people are justifiably concerned about contracting the virus.
• governmemt putting money into the system. the spy now with attach the old highs.
• Lockdown to be lifted

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• Markets having difficulty breaking Fibs 61.8% retracement from March 23rd bottom, and nearing top of Elliott Wave 5 from same bottom. In addition, there’s divergence from price with declining volume and momentum.
• all signs show red flags!
• Too many states reopening too soon causing a spike in COVID-19 cases
• Unemployment numbers
• Run up last week at end of week, and more bad economic news than good.
• I’m stupid
• The market is ignoring the real world. The Fed has pushed the market up. Is there still any more Fed money to continue the charade? The world will be lucky to be at 80% capacity 6 months from now, but the market says we’ll be at 100%+. Oh, and costs will have risen dramatically so earnings will be slower to recover than sales. Maybe the market will hold together until Q2 earnings arrive. But the Election year cycle is against it.
• it might go lower, because a lot of people are out of work, however it might go higher, for the gov is buying into the market, and they need money to pay for all these people who are now put on welfare, and business loans, which they ran out of money.
