BULLISH SENTIMENT BACK TO HIGHS

According to the latest sentiment reading from Investor’s Intelligence bullishness has once again jumped towards new highs.  The latest reading showed bullishness at 57.3%.  This is 2.8% higher than last week and just 1.5% off the recent higher of 58.8% set during the Christmas week in 2010.  All in all these sentiment readings have been giving a huge warning flag, but the market has continued to plow higher.  The obvious conclusion is that once everyone is bullish they have positioned their portfolio as such, however, the market has given investors not a single good reason to ignore the onslaught of positive economic data.

  1. Hi

    Would it be possible to get sentiment chart 10 -15 years back?

    Thanks

  2. I would like to second Bertram’s comment. I think this would be a good idea and help make comparisons with a longer time period. Afterall, how extreme is the current reading?
