Charles Schwab surveyed 477 active traders in June 2013 and discovered a rise in neutral outlooks on the market. A majority still think it’s a good time to invest in equities, but 37 percent are unsure. Plus, nearly 38 percent of traders surveyed say they are bullish on stocks over the next three to six months, down from 52 percent in March. With an anticipation of volatility ahead, confidence that portfolios are properly hedged against potential risk dropped 8 percentage points between the first and second quarter. Despite solid gains in most major market averages thus far in 2013, many active traders feel they could be doing better. Only a handful (4 percent) would give themselves a grade of “A” on the year-to-date performance of their portfolio. An overwhelming majority (75 percent) believe their portfolio performance deserves a “B” or “C” grade. For more information, please visit www.Schwab.com.
