| Survey targeting retail investors – Question 4: how do you research stocks? »
I just read TD Ameritrade's bi-annual ( Dec 2010 ) client survey and I am optimistic about the optimistic views their retail investor clients are about 2011.
Many clients surveyed (nearly 50%) feel “somewhat” or “very optimistic” about the outlook for the U.S. economy, up thirteen percentage points (13%) from in July 2010.
Thirty-six percent (36%) of TD Ameritrade clients surveyed agree that news about the stock market indicates that it's a good time to invest. Up eight percentage (8%) points from July 2010
Seventy-six percent (76%) put more money into and/or held steady regarding their investments into the stock market over the last month.
Twenty-seven percent (27%) of investors surveyed expect to trade more this quarter. Fifty-two percent (52%) expect to hold steady at their current trading volume
The full report is in their newsroom. Have a great day. Learn more.
