Stock Market Investor Sentiment / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Ed_Carlson

Technicians typically look for signs of excess bullishness or bearishness in sentiment polls to conclude markets have swung too far in one direction or the other. An extreme in bullishness is often followed by a decline in equities and an extreme in bearishness is often followed by a rally.

Stock Market Sentiment Update / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Gary_Tanashian

In the last 2 NFTRH editions, we noted extremely over bearish market sentiment conditions in Rydex bull/bear fund allocations and in Small Speculators’ net short positions. These sentiment indicators have been reset to traditional correction-ending, even bear market-ending levels.  That’s the reality.

The latter especially, has been a reliable contrary indicator.  Basically, the Small Specs have never been right at important market turns.  For instance, they were heavily net short in the late 1990’s but by the time the market topped in 2000, they had covered and become net long.  They have reliably been a contrary indicator all along the current bull market as well, going net short at each correction bottom, post 2009.

Stock Market Sentiment Reset / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Gary_Tanashian

Excerpted from an extensive multi-market NFTRH update (including global stocks, commodities and precious metals) yesterday morning:

Volatility.  It is what we expected and it is what we have with Tuesday’s big down and upward reversal, down hard again yesterday and today very green in pre-market.  This volatility applies to most assets markets including the precious metals.  It is the nature of the beast during a news-rich summer, with many operators on vacation or semi-vacation (with some players not able to resist peeking?).

Stock Market Fear Is Good / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Investment_U

Steve McDonald writes: Chesapeake Energy (NYSE: CHK), the brainchild of Aubrey McClendon, has been though the ringer for the past few years. Its problems included McClendon using it as his personal piggy bank, or some such accusation; buying far too many assets in the shale areas in the U.S. and ending up in a cash crunch; gas prices dropping to ridiculous levels; and the stock price getting crushed from around $60 to the low teens.

Stock Market Bull - Bear Spread for Sentimental Reasons / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Ed_Carlson

The song (I love you) For Sentimental Reasons was recorded by Nat King Cole in 1946 and I feel as if I’ve been staring at my sentiment indicators for nearly that long trying to tell if equity markets are due for a bounce this week.

Survey-driven metrics such as the AAII (American Association of Individual Investors) and NAAIM (National Association of Active Investment Managers) have definitely fallen but don’t appear to have fallen to levels associated with past lows in the S&P 500. The chart below shows the AAII bull-bear spread. It has turned negative for the first time since last August but it certainly hasn’t reached the level seen in late August which succeeded in turning the equity market back up from its low then.

Courtesy of Declan. I have added a new market sentiment chart with relative momentum, trend and volume metrics in the one chart. As an example in the new chart, industrials (XLI) gained Thursday and Friday, but these gains were delivered with a drop in momentum, cooling volume and a weak bullish trend.

The Twitter Stock Market Investor Sentiment Indicator / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: PhilStockWorld

The Downside Hedge Twitter Sentiment indicator for the S&P 500 Index (SPX) is confirming the current uptrend. Both daily and smoothed sentiment are showing very strong readings that reflect the optimism of market participant’s tweets. We saw a good number of tweets early last week predicting the market would hold support and that any dip should be bought. This proved to be true as the dip to 1400 on SPX was bought aggressively. Later in the week traders were tweeting about trading the current range, but still wanting to be buyers to levels as low as the 1385 on SPX (near the 200 day moving average).

Witness the Epic Battle Between Stock Market Investor Hope and Investor Fear / InvestorEducation / Stock Market Sentiment

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCan an investor ever know enough about financial markets to make a truly informed decision?

Even professionals must cope with imperfect knowledge, and the constant uncertainty that comes with it. That's why every investor looks to others for signals about what to do.

Have you ever watched a dog interact with its owner? The dog repeatedly looks at the owner, taking cues constantly. The owner is the leader, and the dog is a pack animal alert for every cue of what the owner wants it to do.

Investor Sentiment at Stock Market Bottom / InvestorEducation / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEd Carlson writes: Everyone seems to be in on the ‘sentiment game’. Even non-technicians talk on CNBC and Bloomberg T.V. these days about throwing in the towel, capitulation, and washouts as if it’s something everybody watches and not just technicians. For the uninitiated the idea is that once sentiment (crowd psychology) has moved too far to one extreme (bearish or bullish) that the sentiment pendulum will then swing in the other direction. Call it reversion to the mean or what you will, it is a phenomenon which seems to hold throughout the human experience and the natural world. The ‘trick’ is to quantify an otherwise qualitative turn of events.

Stock Market Investor Sentiment and a Quick Dow Theory Update / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Tim_Wood

Sentiment alone is not a timing tool for the market.  But, it is useful in telling us when too many people get on the same side of the boat, which in turn tells us that conditions have ripened for a turn.   I have said many times of late that the recent sentiment environment reminded me of the 2006 and 2007 period.    In the chart below I have included the S&P 500 and a sentiment indicator that is comprised of the Investor Intelligence Bulls divided by Bulls plus Bears.  In other words, this shows us the percentage of Bulls to total Bulls and Bears.  Now, note on the chart below that during the 2007 period when this reading rose above 72%, an intermediate-term top soon followed.

Stock Market Dumb Money Turns Bearish Which is Bullish / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs expected, the "dumb money" has turned bearish on the markets, and this is a bullish signal.

The "Dumb Money" indicator (see figure 1) looks for extremes in the data from 4 different groups of investors who historically have been wrong on the market: 1)Investors Intelligence; 2) Market Vane; 3) American Association of Individual Investors; and 4) the put call ratio. The "Dumb Money" indicator has turned bearish and this is a bullish signal.

Stock Market Investor Sentiment Indicators At SubNormal Levels / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Rosenberg, in his daily letter, presented some interesting sentiment statistics in perspective of historical values during good and bad times. The implication is that there is a major disconnect between bullish comments about the economy by some experts and the view of the people where the rubber meets the road. He combines that information to suggest that the S&P 500 is substantially overvalued.

SP-500, GLD and GDX Investor Sentiment Trumps Everything / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: John_Townsend

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarkets rise when the preponderance of participants are buyers, and fall when the preponderance of participants are sellers.  One of the key ways to anticipate the pendulum swings of participant behavior, and therefore price behavior, is to evaluate sentiment.  Sentiment, more than fundamentals or technical analysis, trumps everything.

When too many players are on the same side of a trade they eventually find themselves in a crowded position where most everyone around them has the same motivation – to reverse their position when the tide changes.

Stock Market Rydex Bull Bear Investor Sentiment Ratio / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Every week I present the following chart in our sentiment round up. See figure 1. It is the Rydex total bull to bear ratio. The indicator in the lower panel of figure 1 measures all the assets in the Rydex bullish oriented equity funds divided by the sum of assets in the bullish oriented equity funds plus the assets in the bearish oriented equity funds. When the indicator is green, the value is low and there is fear in the market; this is where market bottoms are forged. When the indicator is red, there is complacency in the market. There are too many bulls and this is when market advances stall.

Investors Intelligence Stock Market Sentiment Indicator, Be Careful What You Wish For / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFile this article from Bloomberg under "the be careful what you wish for" column. The article highlights market sentiment data from Investors Intelligence, and for the first time since March, 2009, there are more bearish newsletter writers than bullish ones. While the article wishes this was a good thing, the entirety of the data series would suggest that it is not so simple.

Stock Market Investor Sentiment: Lack Of Conviction? / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestors remain bearish, and buying into last week's weakness continues to be the right play -- so far. However, a positive outcome is far from certain especially since there is an apparent lack of conviction amongst the "smart money". Nonetheless, this is our "fat pitch" especially since we have defined our downside risk and where a failed signal might occur. Despite these concerns this is a dynamic market environment with the potential for big gains.

Moribund Investor Sentiment Is Jeopardizing the U.S. Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Money_Morning

Jon D. Markman writes: The U.S. stock market is really at a critical juncture right now.

I'm all for being optimistic at the prospect of a super-oversold condition amid rampant pessimism. But bulls need to take charge of the controls of this sputtering plane. But now that they failed to yank the stick higher before the February lows, the bottom is really in danger of falling out.
