In the sectors, though, precious metals was picked as most likely to rise, with commerical banks seen as most likely falling. Interestingly, commercial banks was picked two weeks straight as the bearish sector but the two prior weeks was seen as the most bullish sector. Perhaps investors believe banks have rebounded enough for now.
