Bulls Remain In Charge

Even with politicians in DC working as hard as they can to mess everything up, there were once again more bulls than bears in our weekend market poll.  As shown below, 58% of poll participants said the S&P 500 will be higher one month from now, while 42% said it would be lower.

This is now the 8th straight week of more bulls than bears dating back to the election.  Prior to November, there was a lot of back and forth between bulls and bears in our weekly poll, but you can see the clear trend towards bullishness once the final two months of the year rolled around.
