The composite sentiment reading shows what percentage of all the investors represented by the above data can be classified as bullish on the stock market at any given time. Unlike many NDR charts, the arrows on the chart are not buy or sell signals but are only indications of where peaks and troughs in sentiment occurred and are identified only in hindsight.
For a new bearish extreme to be identified, the Poll reading must rise from below A new bullish extreme would be indicated only after the Poll falls from a reading above When these criteria are met, a new arrow is added at the date of the Poll's most extreme reading since the previous arrow.
Thus the arrows are not designed to be used for trading purposes, only to help identify the levels at which past extremes have occurred. As with most of our sentiment indicators, we find that it is best to go with the flow of sentiment until it reaches an extreme and reverses, at which point we take a contrary position.
When the bullish sentiment reading has risen to high levels, it has frequently coincided with an intermediate-term peak in stock prices. Conversely, when sentiment has fallen to low levels most investors are bearishstock prices have typically been near a bottom. This chart is useful because it aggregates several different sentiment indicators, and highlights levels at which investor sentiment has reversed in the past. It can therefore help in anticipating reversals in investor psychology, and thus stock prices, going forward.Sincewe have measured what investors and traders do, not what they think, say or feel.

It is growing difficult to find any industrial indexes with confirmed bullish trends that are not looking weak. The Nikkei may have one of the few positive weekly biases but it also is at a critical structural point - either retracement of the recent downward move, or a new leg higher to new highs. Two previous sets of occurrences of the Stretch and Reaction in deep extreme bullish zone on the same 2 consecutive days like the last 2 days preceded significant declines immediately January 02, or, by a several sessions August 28, and September 25, Another set that is very similar was the 2 days ending October 05, We are not inferring a big drop immediately or in a few sessions, we view this occurrence more as an alert to be ready for a near term move that otherwise be unexpected - maybe upward is still possible.
The straight drop for the past 6 sessions for NYA and RUT are disturbing at best, and only one session of flat effort at retracement back - not to exclude the obvious lower lows and lower highs for NYA since May. One of the few negative non-bullish scenarios and structural phasing potentials is a sequential rollover of the indexes into a Primary 4th phase.
The question for SPX is can it reverse from near Friday's lows, and, then proceed to take out the level, that we have too often repeated as necessary, to indicate higher structural advances consistent with a bullish Intermediate 5th phase of this long Primary 3 that began at October lows.
So, if SPX does not reverse higher and exceed on close by the next significant timing point on July 31st, then we will begin to assume that the next few months will have bearish bias and a corrective structure. If it cannot mount such a rally then the most prominent SPX targets below are,perhaps a spike to but if it does not hold then could be the low of the first move down of Primary 4th.
That is our preliminary scenario for any continued drop through FOMC and beyond. We will allow for some flexibility since 4th phases are not always amenable to forecasting their lengths, structures, timing or endings. You can see the drama in stock market sentiment delivered by a 35 handle decline for SPX last week.
It has not resulted in a big reversal since it has not reached for the extreme bullish zone. In fact, on daily comments we expected an intraday re-test of SPX level and a gap closure - got the re-test, but gap still not covered. Daily Sentiment for Week ending June 02, updated periodically. Sentiments have again offered proper signals through another year of market action.
The year of is more likely to have a solid correction for the indexes and could well begin in the first half of the year. Following that multi-month corrective move, the bullish move and trend should resume with conviction into a high that will be followed a much more significant correction which could last for a year or two.
We infer from the structure that the more significant correction is likely to deeper than many investors will expect. The depth of the correction is likely to be accompanied by an increase in speed downward. This speed and depth is likely to scare many investors who have only recently returned to the buy side for stocks after taking some downward moves in the debt markets.

See the daily charts above and consider. Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
