Despite a six-day losing streak and more uncertainty about the Chinese economy, nearly half of investors say they plan to stay resolute on Wednesday.
About 45 percent of the respondents to an unscientific CNBC.com survey said they planned to sell “nothing” on Wednesday.

The data, collected from more than 1,000 respondents over a 12-hour period after Tuesday’s market close, broadly mirrors a similar survey conducted Sunday, where most investors had said they planned to stay firm Monday.
Monday’s session was one of the roughest in years, though, with stocks dropping more than 1,000 points early in the day.
Among those who are selling, the most popular target (3.2 percent) was Apple, again mirroring the previous poll.
Just 6.5 percent said they would sell “everything,” up from 4 percent who said the same thing going into Monday’s trading.
Among those inclined to buy, Apple was also the most popular stock, with 20 percent targeting it for purchase. It was followed, though not closely, by Facebook, Netflix, and precious metals.
Another 15 percent, though, indicated they were buying “nothing” on Wednesday. That was up slightly from the previous survey, where 13 percent indicated they planned to stand firm.
