Men are more confident than women that a stock market recovery is just around the corner, according to the latest Investor Confidence Research from JPMorgan Fleming Asset Management.
A random sample of 500 private investors in the UK who were surveyed between 6 - 12 September were asked to predict the level of the UK stock market in six months' time. Whereas 32% of men said it was likely or highly likely to rise, only a corresponding 21% of women followed suit.

Other findings from the research reveal that compared to the previous month, fewer people (27%) overall now believe the stock market index will be higher in six months time. Indeed, 36% think it will be lower and 37% believe it will remain more or less at current levels.
