Stock Market Investor Sentiment: The Great Unwind / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen you look at investor sentiment for the past week, you must understand that the majority of data was collected and disseminated prior to Thursday's downdraft. While the data may seem stale and not reflective of the end of week events, it should be appreciated how many investors were wrong on this market. We weren't just seeing excessive bullish sentiment prior to this week, we were seeing extreme and excessive bullish sentiment. For example, in the Investors Intelligence data, there were 3 times as many bulls as bears, a reading last seen in December, 2009 and October, 2007.

Stock Market Investor Sentiment, Is it Providing a Warning? / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestor sentiment is known as a contrary indicator. Here’s how that works.

When a market correction is underway investors naturally become increasingly fearful and bearish as prices continue to fall. By the time the correction ends, investor sentiment has reached a high level of fear and bearishness.

Stock Market Investor Sentiment, A Different Look / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVery often when looking at sentiment indicators, many market practitioners view the data as an all or nothing phenomenon. Either we are all in or too extreme in our opinions, and it is in those extremes that market turning points occur. That is how it is suppose to work. But as we have found out in 2009 (like in 1995 and 2003), prices can continue meaningfully higher despite extreme readings in the indicators. It should be obvious that looking for extremes to call turning points in the markets doesn't work all the time.

My YouTube Stock Market Sentiment Index / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Steven_Vincent

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI take my trading and market analysis very seriously. But once in a while you have to let your hair down (what's left of it, anyway) and have a little fun.

I had noticed that on YouTube it seemed that bearishly apocalyptic market and economic analysis (most of which should be referred to as "analysis") received far more views than bullish or neutral postings. I also noticed that such videos would receive many concurring comments and favorable ratings while bullish analysis was frequently targeted for denigration.

Stock Market Investor Sentiment, Don't Stray Too Far From The Data / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI always have the option of how I present the data. I can be negative or positive in my outlook and tone. But one thing I rarely do is stray too far from the data. I am flexible, but I remain data centric in my approach, and this forms the basis for my trading decisions. In the current market environment we find the sentiment picture to be pretty much what it has been for the last 6 months: the "smart money" is bearish and the "dumb money" remains bullish. Under these conditions, I know that the ascent of prices is likely to slow as either range bound trading will develop or an intermediate term top is imminent.

Financial Markets are Driven by Two Powerful Emotions, Greed and Fear / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Puru_Saxena

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA Weighing Machine - “In the short run, the market is a voting machine, but in the long run it is a weighing machine’ – Benjamin Graham

BIG PICTURE – The truth is that the financial markets are driven by two powerful emotions – greed and fear.  Essentially, during periods when the market participants are feeling cheerful and optimistic, they end up paying exorbitant prices for mediocre businesses.  On other occasions, when investors are feeling pessimistic about the near-term economic prospects, they price wonderful businesses at absurdly low valuations.  This manic-depressive behaviour has been consistent since the beginning of time and is largely responsible for the wild short-term gyrations in the financial markets.

“WALL STREET” the Movie, And What It Means For the Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Antony_Ganzitti

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI came across a rather interesting phenomenon recently.  I am an avid observer of price charts and take an unorthodox approach (at times) to trading.  I am a big fan of market cycles, Elliott waves, Fibonacci ratios, patterns, and believe in the all conquering theory that price action is the ultimate key to market success.

Stock Market Investor Sentiment in Bounce Mode / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe investor sentiment data is consistent with a market that is in bounce mode.  Following the late January sell off, investors really did not become too bearish.  The subsequent bounce over the past 2 weeks has once again created a sense of complacency across our various metrics.  In light of this, it will be difficult for the major stock indices to climb to new highs.  Despite the recent short term strength, it is still my contention that we will need to go lower before heading meaningfully higher. I discussed the research behind this claim in the article, "Why I Think We Need To Go Lower Before Going Higher".

Stock Market Investor Sentiment Finally Turns Neutral / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinally, the "Dumb Money" indicator has turned neutral after spending 28 consecutive weeks in the extreme bullish zone. For those keeping score at home, the S&P500 gained 8.9% over the past 28 weeks. For the sake of comparison, investor sentiment was either bearish or neutral for the 9 weeks following the March 6, 2009 bottom, and over that time, the S&P500 gained 36%. I will leave it to you as to which market environment I want to put my money to work.

Stock Market Bullish Participation Level Slowly Declines / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Donald_W_Dony

In the February Newsletter, I mentioned that the high level of bullish participation was expected to gradually wane starting in February. The extra high percent (85% to 92%) of stocks on the NYSE Composite trading above their 200-day moving averages was not sustainable. Fledgling bulls markets typically display this high range during the first year and then drift lower into a 80% to 50% band in the second year. The NYSE appears to be following the standard path.

Stock Market Sentiment Major Change Underway / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet’s talk about sentiment.

Last week was the worst market week since March 2009. Similarly, the three-day decline from Wednesday through Friday was the worst three days since March 2009. The market is now officially in the red for 2010. And the persons we’ve identified as market props (Bernanke, Geithner, etc) are now beginning to come under intense fire for their actions.

Stock Market Sentiment Needs Correcting... / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Jack_Steiman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is what likely needs to happen. I have talked about the short-term risk for some days with the primary trend still being higher. Within those primary trends there comes a time when markets need to pull back lower. That needs to take place when sentiment gets too heavy on the bullish side of things. We now see sentiment readings very close to levels that have caused pullbacks in bull markets just about every time although timing it is virtually impossible. A 37.5% spread as of the week of January 4th and this isn't great news for the bulls although far from a death knell. 37.5% more bulls equals a top soon to come and its possible the top was put in yesterday given some weekly engulfing candles on our Nasdaq/NDX charts (non confirmed on the Dow/S&P 500/Wilshire 5000).

Rydex Stock Market Timers Long Term View / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Rarely in this forum have we used the Rydex market timers to guide us in making that intermediate term trading decision. Typically, money flows in and out of their funds relatively easily, and this data set appears better suited for positioning oneself on a daily basis. However, a longer term (i.e., weekly view) has proved fruitful in the past, and this is what is presented in this article.

Stock Market Bullish Investor Sentiment At Tipping Point? / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrom an investor sentiment perspective there is very little to like about the current US equity market. The "dumb money" continues to be bullish to an extreme. The "smart money" is neutral to bearish. Company insiders continue to be relentless in their selling. The Rydex market timers are their most bullish since mid August. With most investors in the bullish camp, at some point the market will reach its tipping point, and it is my expectation that this will be sooner than later. After all, who is left to buy if everyone is so bullish?

Are Stock Market Sentiment Indicators Useless? / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we have chronicled, investor sentiment has not been a very useful tool for timing the market the past 6 months. The "Dumb Money" indicator has been extremely bullish since the end of July, yet the S&P500 has tacked on - albeit begrudgingly - about 14% since that time. Looking at the sentiment picture from the perspective of company insiders, insider selling has exceeded insider buying by historic amounts since May, and company insiders continue to sell significantly despite the strong gains.

Stock Market Dumb Money Indicator Says Investors are Extremely Bullish / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe holidays are approaching, and I am lucky enough to be traveling this year with my family. So there won't be any comments attached to this week's sentiment charts. I don't have the time, and I won't waste your time. That's o.k. because as you know nothing has really changed in this market for the last three months anyway. Prices have been range bound, and investors continue to be overly bullish, insiders continue to sell, and the smart money remains indifferent.

Stock Market Timers, FOMC A One Day Event / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

For Wednesday's FOMC announcement, the Rydex market timers were betting heavy that Bernanke and company would deliver. The Fed didn't disappoint as they continue to keep their foot on the easy money pedal. Unfortunately, the market did its best to frustrate the most, and the early morning rally fizzled intraday. The Rydex market timers have moved back to the sidelines.
