Average investors are clearly less bullish about stocks than the pros, particularly after the market's big selloff last week.
That's the conclusion of a survey of both groups by CNBC.com.
The CNBC Trillion Dollar Snap Survey of Wall Street money managers and investiment strategists was conducted from 5pm ET Thursday, July 26 until 12:00pm ET Friday, July 27. We then sought responses from CNBC.com users ("Main Street") between 12:30 PM ET Friday until 11AM ET Monday, July 30.
We emailed an invitation to almost 100 of Wall Street top money managers and investment strategists. Many of them participated in our first Trillion Dollar Survey in mid-July. In our coverage of the results from the Wall Street survey we gave CNBC.com users the option to take the survey themselves.
The results reflect the opinions of those who accepted the invitations. This is not a scientific poll.
