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:

• Whether S&P will go higher this week depends on earning reports from NFLX and PG. It depends especially on future guidance indicated by these companies.
• Market has corrected, and is ready to move on up.
• I think things are still leaning Republican and it may stay bullish or go back up some maybe I guess
• weak bounce, bearish flad
• Friday afternoon’s rally off of support gave us a hammer. Continued upside is expected. Next resistance could be at 2885-90, the midpoint of the Bollinger band.
• I believe the market is manipulated to some degree by Wall Street. The some for the silver market (J.P. Morgan, etc.)
• Rebound time.
• Market is extreme oversold.
• Bounce off resistance
• done selling

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• broken trend lines on bigger tech stocks as well as macro events going on short term. Economy stable for earnings reports starting should consolidate markets in month ahead
• The big question after Wed/Thurs drop is 1) is this just a correction, or 2) is this the crash so many were expecting. We’re not going to know the answer to the above until the data is in at the end of next week. I suspect it’s a “correction” and the next crash will come inside the next 1 to 3 years during which there could be several more corrections. So next week I’m expecting the sell off to continue but reach some point of consolidation / stabilization. After that the markets could continue upwards with a bit more volatility than was occuring prior to this week.
• Interest rate rise uncertainty
• The downtrend that started after the Presidential emergency tweet on that Wednesday 10 days ago will continue. It will end when the public says “just get me out”.
• Retest of the recent low
• too much debt economic instability consumer spending wanes stocks will be affected negatively
• October swoon
• Lower highs & lower lows & below 100 day moving average & at 200 day moving average
• Overvalued market
• History shows this as a bad week.
• I really dont know y but that s wut i think it will b
• High volatility and big downdrafts make the markets look risky to the downside right now
• Appears to have entered “a” wave
• Last week drop

No Prediction:

• I gave no answer because the market has been on such a roller coaster ride that I don’t even want to hazard a guess for such a short term.

Question #4a. Do you think the drop in the markets this week were the start of a longer downtrend or a minor correction on the way to new highs (i.e. 6 months from now do you think the S&P500 will be higher or lower than today)?


Question #4b. Why?

“Minor correction (S&P500 heading higher)” Respondent Answers:

• October typically has been a volatile month for the stock market. Additionally, there have been pullbacks to some extent prior to earning season. Investing community is a bit more wary prior to this earning season because of potential warnings which companies might issue because of tariffs and the trade war. I am hoping the market can digest any of these warnings and continue its climb up. Especially tech stocks such as Apple, AMZN, & Microsoft.
• Republicans will be victorious in my opinion are better candidates say especially against Baria
• explained in previous comment
• Got a feeling
• nothing changed fundamentally
• In previous instances of these bounces off of support, the market has moved up for a month or more. After that, it gets quite unpredictable.
• Market was overbought to the max. The downtrend will continue and will end when the public says “just get me out”. Then the market can return to new highs.
• Earnings & economy are strong.

“Start of a longer downtrend (S&P500 heading lower)” Respondent Answers:

• too much debt currency will suffer trade war bonds, pensions, banks will suffer less consumer spending and lose confidence
• If trade war with China, inflation will go higher & lower profits which will cut P/E ratios.
• Interest rate increases, and perception the mid-year election results are obvious.
• .atket overvalued for too long and inverters are moving to safe havens
• Over priced stocks
• Bull is too long in the tooth


Question #5. Additional Comments/Questions/Suggestions?

• The big CRASH I’m expecting still has 1 to 3 years to occur and I believe it will occur after the offshore money coming into the US markets begins drying up. The US will be the last stop in the search for a safe haven. That’s when what is happening that’s beginning to occur in troubled economies around the world begins finally to occur here. At that point the economic crisis will be worldwide. No more safe havens to flee too.

TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Prediction: 52% Chance Higher
This prediction is an attempt by the editor of this newsletter to use the full 5 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 40.6% Higher, and the Crowd Forecast Indicator prediction was 57% Chance Higher; the S&P500 closed 0.27% Lower for the week. This week’s majority sentiment from the survey is 62.1% Higher with a greater average confidence from those who responded Lower. Similar conditions have been observed 77 times in the previous 261 weeks, with the majority sentiment being correct 52% of the time, but with an average S&P500 move of 0.12% Lower for the week. Based on that history, the TimingResearch Crowd Forecast Indicator is forecasting a 52% Chance that the S&P500 is going to move Higher this coming week.

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:

• I like Donald
• It’s a bull market!
• Bounce off of daily 20 period EMA & higher low.
• 50 d ma and 20 day ma up, at bottom of upward channel
• Holding the 50% retracement long in the S&P at $2905
• Mid-term elections.
• history.
• still buying
• The S&P was in consolidation the previous week, which provides a good setup for a rise this week. Also, a nice GDP increase and good earnings expectations should help.
• Elliott wave pattern.
• Large volume trades show more selling. Low volume trades still show buying. I don’t know whether “the top” is in yet, but I’m sure not going to buy the dips.

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• Overbought markets. 3rd qtr ended – sellers should return.
• Tariffs
• Current white administration is bringing too much controversy and distrust
• Due to the Presidents nonsense position size
• Its ending pullback in all my s tocks
• Tarriffs!

Question #4. What procedures do you use for trade management? (e.g. position size, stops, scaling in or out, etc.)

• position size, stops, sometimes scaling
• I try to keep position sizes of relatively the same size.
• Mental stops
• I don’t know
• start small, 8% loss stops, take off profits 35%
• Scaling in.
• Daily loss limit, weekly loss limit, # of stops per day.
• Position size
• Position size, stops, market direction.
• Scaling
• stops
• Proper stops, no scaling, support & resistance, use of trailing stops if trending
• Position sizing used with various strategies. All in all out also used depending on strategy used. Stops are very important and honoring them is critical in maintaining risk management.
• position size
• Algorithmic


Question #5. Additional Comments/Questions/Suggestions?

• seasonality is against my answers.
• Is there a better and close too 100% certainty to read the market in the USA??

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:

• Banking is stable for now maybe according to Ole Miss
• Tariffs & trade are keys to the degree & direction but the market wants to go up even when it sells off a little because of anticipated strong earnings & a strong economy in spite of hurricane aftermath. With monthly option expiration, triple witching, FED announcements, it’s like getting answers to this current chapter relieving some uncertainty. The economy is growing, the market is rising, you don’t want to miss the bus & soon we’ll have an even more divided govt which the market likes..
• Yes
• usa earnings remain robust
• history
• Going with continuation of last week’s move up. The 50-day moving avg has been offering good support.
• Friday was triple witching, with that behind us, trade talks are progressing albeit slowly, no real earnings or major news releases we should start the final climb to the end of the year. The election in November will create more distraction but the big event is not that Republicans lose control but new financially responsible ind. may breathe fresh air into the stagnant halls. Also with Canada charging to legal sells of cannabis and many more states voting to approve, things sb interesting
• more $$$ fowing back into the markets
• Trend continues
• Charts don’t look finished to upside. S&P previous all-time high is a magnet. BUT I’m only 60% confident – because all the fundamentals say it’s already way too high. Long-term the fundamentals eventually matter. Don’t they??

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• Market overbought
• tariffs
• Uncertainty caused by Trump’s trade war.
• The S&P is again reaching overbought as it makes a push towards new highs. The week may start higher as new highs are achieved but without substantial reasons for the move it will likely attract major profit taking.
• trade wars
• lower since I’m long
• EW
• Seasonal downturn continues. September will be unforgiving.
• Worst six months historically
• Market topped over summer Oct selloff


Question #4. What are the most important mental and emotional characteristics for traders to develop?

• Follow your own research
• Profit to liquid asset maybe I guess
• stops and the reason for the trade? Do not lose money.
• No need to trade everyday.
• Accept that the market is the boss, is unforgiving and that your intuition is probably wrong. Accept the consequences of every trade and trade small enough that you can deal with the results. Always know why you’re making a trade, have a plan and a backup plan. Remember that a long-term trade is often a short-term trade gone wrong. Get enough education to trade effectively. If hope and prayer are parts of your strategy, stop trading and get a better job.
• patience and perseverence
• Don’t panic
• For me, it’s to take a small loss before it turns into a large loss. And then to move on. Don’t try to make the next trade make up for the previous loss. Instead, just trade your system.
• patience
• Be observant. Act on facts. Charts and news rule .
• learn how to make a decision.
• money managment
• Most importantly, don’t let emotion take hold.


Question #5. Additional Comments/Questions/Suggestions?

• Make more by trading less.
• All panelists should be on camera.
• show in table form and graphically how predictions compare to actual market performance. THIS IS A MUST!

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:

• Donald Trump enthusiasm
• The line on the chart says it all. The trend continues higher after a short hiatus. Inflation from jobs data now solidly will influence the equity markets and gold higher.
• up week following a down week
• Recent history.
• People returning from vacation
• momentum

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• Ouverbought Market.
• tariffs
• Tariffs are inflationary and are providing a level of uncertainty that is particularly motivating the market to take profits and window dress institutional portfolios for the end of the 3rd qtr although it’s pretty early to do that now. The Fed is going raise interest rates soon and give a press conference that will be a market mover perhaps contributing to the uncertainty. Political and geopolitical hostilities are increasing adding to uncertainty in spite of good economic news otherwise.
• NASDAQ is still jittery and likely to continue down pulling the S&P and eventually the Dow with it.
• There is no reason to create new records in September
• inflation
• TrAde talk/war
• Reality will over take the status quo as the trend remains in the early stages of transitioning from bullish to bearish.
• The market strength is weakening. The September seasonal weakness is getting a grip.
• Since the high on Aug 29, the S&P has been trending down. This trend is likely to continue, especially with the Chinese tariff situation.
• September
• Now the trend is down
• momentum failing support
• It could go anywhere during this volatile season. So I’m simply not going to trade.


Question #4. What procedures do you use to monitor and evaluate your trading results and progress over time?

• Annual returns compared
• past history averages
• comparison of results to goals
• I keep a journal but it’s not like a diary. More like unexpected surprises that I should be ready for next time. And new possible ideas for what-if scenarios. Because I trade options, there are lots of what-if’s.
• Acct bal.
• bank account
• increase in overall portofolio
• I keep records
• Profit and Loss Statements.
• Look at net worth
• Still the same procedure – evaluating equity over time
• credit balance
• Profit
• Performance
• When I am successful, I am like a cheetah attaching an injured lamb. When I am unsuccessful, I AM the injured lamb.
• Reviewing of and adherence to my risk management rules.


Question #5. Additional Comments/Questions/Suggestions?

• The political left is so insecure in their beliefs that they feel the need to shut down free speech and an exchange of other ideas through violence like spoiled 2-year-olds. You don’t often see similar behavior from the right even when they are in the minority and don’t get their way. So who do you think is more likely to take away your freedom? Separately, Nike is misguided and is insulting so I will peacefully buy products from its competitors. I’ll just do that instead!

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:

• It will dip from tues thru thursday and rally by end of day Friday
• guess
• The market doesn’t seem to want to go lower
• New high in Aug, currently just above resistance
• Momentum and seasonality
• vacation is over
• In recent weeks, dips have been bought. Momentum is positive.
• 50% chance

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• Labor day signals a sell
• High market could be a resistance line mire sells no than buying maybe I guess
• S&P peaking stchastics >80%
• Market is very ouverbought..
• tariffs
• Higher on the week but lower than Tuesday’s open because the pent up demand after a 3-day weekend should mean that Tues will open up strong especially now that Mexico is on board & Canada is soon to follow. The NFP will be OK but it’s hard to believe that it will be extraordinary. Scary Sept & Oct will retard buying but institutions will be buying back on Tuesday the issues that they sold last week. Still a bullish week but not compared to Tuesday’s open. FAANGs will continue to carry the load.
• Continued uncertainty associated with trade issues with Canada, China, Europe, Etc.
• Don’t fight the Fed
• Overbought
• Testing Support
• I think the market is peaking at new resistance and is due for a rest and some consolidation.
• It is virtually impossible to predict week to week where the S&P ends up each week. What I’m really saying with my routine “lower” and “50%” response isn’t so much what will happen tby this time next wee.. What I am saying is this market is going to turn down and that is the next important event that will inevitably occur and reset the levels at more realistic levels. I will not really bother with being right week to week as a result. I know I’ll get it right in the end.
• The market is overbought and due for a downside correction. September is usually a weak month for stock prices.
• I have certain technical; indicators that I follow and they say we are heading south – but I’m first to say this is a likelihood of happening – that’s all.
• Instability
• Current high and negativity of the Trade negotiations.
• I don’t know where the heck the market is going and therefore rated my confidence at only 50%. Everybody knows it’s “overpriced” whatever that means. Yet most seem to believe it will go up to at least 3000. And everybody has trailing stops or buys protective puts or whatever. So it seems everybody is protected even if there’s a 20% correction. But it seems nothing can stop this uptrend – unless it’s something really drastic and unexpected – maybe. I dunno.


Question #4. What trading-related questions or topics would you like the experts to discuss on future episodes of the weekly Crowd Forecast News show? (The show is off this coming week, but back on September 10th.)

• Entry/exit strategies
• All guests should indicate how long they have been professional advisers and what their annual results have been for the period that they have been advising. They also should indicate what makes them superior.
• Isolation of some markets
• options pricing, instead of buying stock, using options to take bull/bear position.
• Competing with algorithmic firms when trading.
• Profit
• Position Size / Money Management
• seasonality and momentum
• fundamental analysis


Question #5. Additional Comments/Questions/Suggestions?

• A lot of people like to say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting different results and if that’s true, we have have a lot of people in this country promoting socialism who must therefore be insane.
• Will the economy be better because of a new policy o behalf of TYrump?
• Have all panelists on camera.

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:

• Donald Trump ideas maybe help
• going with the trend
• In this final week of AUG, institutions will be re-balancing & window dressing their portfolios & SPX will grind higher to confirm the breakout & anticipate 1st week of Sept trading and 7 Sept NFP. With so many predicting a down Aug & an annual correction in Sept/Oct, the market is bound to go up instead. Seasonal predictions have turned out to be crap & if they happen, they are very temporary. I like all the talk about recession and fear. That is very bullish. USA will win the trade war!
• Weed stocks will continue to push it up
• Risky not to buy
• All the industry indexes are positives :-)
• Momentum and seasonality.
• dovish fed talk
• trending
• Last week, dips were being bought, especially on Friday. Looks like the up move will continue.
• The market (SPX) has broken out of the ATH resistance. Now the path of least resistance is higher into 2900 area.
• This week
• Its toppy folks!

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• Not good at working out where market goes
• Trade debate, political uncertainty, vacations
• I think that the global situation with chinese tariffs and Iran and Turkey are all coming to a head.
• A topping formation is almost forming a slide down is due any day, likely Tue or even Monday.
• SEP..
• Back to school positive action. Retail traders can only help the continued momentum. Previous gold bottom ended up being a basement to a sub basement. The yellow metal may once again start its wall of worry rise even though Powell and crew say inflation is tame.


Question #4. Which trading platform or broker do you like the best for executing your trades?

• fidelity
• Stocks to trade platform Etrade for a broker
• TOS but it’s not the bat you use, it’s the person using the bat. It’s not the cost of the commissions, it’s the positions and money management for your trades that should be the focus. JPM may start commission free trades but how many errors are you going to make learning a new platform?
• TD
• Yours
• Profit able one if possible
• Interactive Brokers
• TOS
• Trade Station
• TD
• TD
• E*Trade
• There are lot of good trading platforms such as StreetSmart Edge (Schwab), Trade Station, Think or Swim, etc. It is up to a trader to chose his trading platform.
• tastyworks
• IG Index ans Saxo bank
• Ninjatrader Firetip of Ironbeam
• none they all have weaknesses that marginalize strengths
• Tastyworks.


Question #5. Additional Comments/Questions/Suggestions?

• A candidate can legally contribute unlimited amounts of his own money for his own election campaign even to obtain NDA’s. Trumps payments to the kiss and tellers are totally legal. If the DEM’s take the House, impeachment will not be brought and if brought will fail in the House and if passed will fail in the Senate. The DEM’s are afraid that Trump is too successful. Tariffs are tough to endure but his actions are the right ones. Shame on all his predecessors who were too cowardly to do it.
• Oil surprisingly keeping a lid even though ability to withstand supply disruption is tight.
• I like your great survey and I request you to expand to more real traders to get their views.
