Affluent Stock Index

You may have noticed the stock market survey projections we’ve posted and tweeted over the past few days. This projection is something we’ve done for nearly 6 months with great results among a select set of beta testers in the financial and insurance community. The morning projection is compiled each day from a morning survey of high income white collar professionals throughout major U.S. cities.

If you review the accuracy of the line graph we’ve posted, you’ll see that our predictions are fairly conservative and provide directionally accurate stock market performance approximately 75% of the time. In fact, since the time we started measuring pre-bell opening investor confidence, we’ve predicted some of the wildest swings in recent memory. Here’s some examples:

 

 

Our Prediction Actual DJIA Change
August 11th, 2011 +538 +422
September 2nd, 2011 -194 -253
September 7th, 2011 +312 +275
November 30th, 2011 +346 +490
December 20th, 2011 +248 +337
February 3rd, 2012 +348 +156
Note: March 6th -207 -203

This daily projection is available right before the opening bell each weekday via Office Pulse and Twitter.com.
