NOTE: The following open-ended answers are solely the opinions of the anonymous respondents to this survey. Responses are mostly unedited, but some have been reformatted slightly for to make them easier to read. 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:

• Fear runs the market now.
• The week before July 4th is almost always bullish. That history should outweigh concerns about COVID spikes.
• pre 4th of July week seasonal bullish strength
• vaccin sooner redy
• lower & higher, this is not a breakdown, upward move by mid of next week is closely observed

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• Price will be back to 2640 (FB retrace 62%), what is it like spinning on a megaphone in a weekly chart.
• Virus numbers are increase, bankruptcy of Chesapeake Energy. President Trump’s ratings are down
• more unemployment
• Rising COVID cases in big states. Report on GDP will show lower numbers. Likelihood that Biden will become President spooks the market.
• The S&P had a high in Feb and a lower high in June. Since then, it hasn’t challenged the more recent high, and closed near to the lower Bollinger band. This leans bearish. Also, Covid19 is more in charge than the Fed is.
• S&P running out of momentum
• technicals
• higher VIX

Question #4. What advice would you give and/or what resources would you recommend to someone who is new to trading?

• Focus more on what is at risk if you are wrong than on what you might make if all goes your way.

• Look for clean software and clean broker and try to avoid fxcm ,don’t take too much risk, and try to consider the contract size AND DONT GET GREEDY, one trade a time. don’t ever place 2 trades or more than one trade a time try to choose the right broker, this is because the broker will place his hand in your pocket and he wouldn’t get out till you close the trade)
