At the end of 2009, we asked Bespoke readers whether they thought the index would be up or down in 2010, and 54% said the index would be up. The S&P 500 is currently up more than 12% this year, so barring a huge drop over the next 7 trading days, the majority will have answered correctly in our poll.
As 2011 looms, we would once again like to get a sentiment gauge of Bespoke readers in regards to the stock market. Instead of just asking whether the S&P 500 will be up or down, however, this year we're asking for more defined answers (up 0%-10%, 10%-20%, etc.). Please take part in the poll below, and we'll report back with the final results as the new year approaches. Thanks for participating, and happy holidays!
