Our research includes information on how investors plan to respond to the market situation over the next 3 months. Do they expect to buy rather than sell, and what is their long-term approach?


Do investors see the COVID-19 market as presenting opportunities?

We asked readers how they feel about stock markets right now. Our research sought to ascertain how optimistic or pessimistic consumer is at this time.
