    the AAII survey this week still shows the public sentiment as very bearish…….the bulls are just 20.3% versus the historical average of 38%……the bears are 44.0% vs 30.5% historically…..hard to see this market selling off much with the public this negative……too bad because i m mostly in cash…..

    RE: #4, yesterday but dated today 2:26am.

    Thanks for your further clarification of the nitty gritty of dividend payments. I realized after I posted about the x-dividend effect, that I had not really explained it. So it was good that you did.


    I had the impression that you were day trading. So are now holding positions longer?

    RE: #1. Thanks for that sentiment indicator. I guess it is just one input and how much weight to give it? I believe Keith Richards has worked out a system that incorporates sentiment in his Bear-O-Meter:

  5. bruce Says:

    yes keith has 6 indicators and one of them is sentiment………i think when the aaii is at this extreme it becomes fairly valuable……like i said i m mostly in cash so i dont want it to work this time…
