So what’s the answer? Which way?
I’ve heard it said that there’s wisdom in crowds.
At times, of course, the madness of crowds seems much more evident.
Leave it to the masses to make the wrong choices.
And when a crowd becomes a herd it can actually get pretty frightening.
But if you connect with a crowd of knowledgeable people, it’s a different story.
Their aggregate analysis and opinions can sometimes express the kind of wisdom that makes the whole greater than the sum of its parts.
Measuring The Markets
Take the stock market for example.
If you ask a stranger on the street how the market is doing, the response can vary.
You might get a strong opinion, whether or not it’s backed up with facts.
You might get a story about an individual experience, especially if the person you’re talking to has recently had a major market loss.
Or you might just get a blank stare in return.
But if you start with someone who already knows you, someone who’s been paying attention to what’s actually going on in the markets, you can expect a very different response.
What’s Your Opinion?
That’s why I thought I’d present this question to you.
We started out the year with a major pull-back, of course.
In more recent weeks we’ve started regaining some of the lost ground.
But what happens from here?
Should we be more bullish or bearish when it comes to stocks?
I’d really like to know what you think.
So, to make it as easy as possible for you to share your insights and opinions, I’ve put together a super-quick survey.
You can provide all the answers in three minutes or less.
Which Way? It’s Just An Opinion!
And of course this is all about your opinions.
That means there are no right or wrong answers – all you have to do is give a few very quick responses to some very simple questions.
It’s all about which way you think things are going to go.
You won’t be graded on your work.
There is, however, a big reward attached – a lot of very sincere gratitude from me!
How To Provide Your Answers

I’m always eager to get comments here, and it’s a fast way for you to respond.
But if you’d like a little more privacy, I’ve got you covered, too.
The survey that I’ve put online is totally confidential.
No tricks, no traps, and no shenanigans.
You can choose to share your name and email when you respond.
Or, if you prefer, you can remain absolutely anonymous.
Either way, it’s up to you.
And either way, I hope you’ll let me know what you think!
