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:

• momentum
• Technical: candle+trend, nfp release was positive
• Good unemployment report. It looks like a V shaped economic recovery.
• More of the economy opens giving greater confidence that we are on the upswing but could be impacted by the growing domestic unrest.
• Momentum is good, which suggests more follow through. Expecting for this week: rotation into lagging stocks, buying of dips, S&P holds up okay.
• Trend

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• Still large number of people unemployed. Not enough jobs too fill the unemployment gap.
• more protests
• The rise has moved too fast. Bound to have some correction.
• Profit taking from last week
• Market has been overbought for a couple weeks. Last friday the rubberband stretched so far that it needs to correct for a little while. Revert to the average or lower before it continues to rocket higher as things continue to open up. Our Covid 19 numbers were the highest they have been last week but without drastic increase in hospitalizations or deaths so far. The virus might be mutating to a less lethal form while still causing herd immunity- hopefully.
• Volume flow
