Investors Sentiment

heading_blank2

Description:

A contrarian investor or the behavioral finance followers believe that when everybody is fully invested there will be no further purchasing power. At this point, the market is at a peak. On the other hand, when people predict a downturn, they have already sold out, at which point the market can only go up. A popular measure of market sentiment are surveys, which quantify the level of optimism or pessimism among investors like the Association of Individual Investors, Market Vane and the Global Futures Sentiment Index.

Percentage of Bulls Market Vane

The principles of Contrarian Investing hold that when the vast majority of people agree on anything, they are generally wrong. Otherwise no market would function because there is simply no minority with money enough to make a majority rich. A true contrarian, therefore, will first try to determine what the majority are doing and then will act in the opposite direction. A unique feature of Market Vane's Bullish Consensus numbers is a weighting formula applied to the various market letters. More weight is given to letters with a larger following and less weight to those with fewer readers.

 

Each week a poll of market letters is taken to determine the degree of bullishness or bearishness among futures professionals. The theory is that when a significant number of participants are bullish, they are already positioned on the long side and there is little potential buying power left. If most participants are bearish, selling pressure has reached an extreme and prices will reverse to the upside.
