    the AAII survey this week has the bulls at 19.4% vs 21.0 last week and 32.0% two weeks ago….historically 38%…..the bears are up to 58.3% this week from 46.9 last week and 37.1 two weeks ago…..historically the average is 30.5%…..this survey has been a fairly good contrary indicator in the past but certainly not for the past month or two….

    Geez, not much of a “Bounce Back” in the market…………..She’s still a very sick puppy. But price on the Dow is right on the Fibonacci 38.2% retracement level which serves as a support point. That is also right at the Feb & Nov 2020 high. “Should be” a descent bounce back off these price points. Don’t expect a blast to the moon as this bear market isn’t done yet but a descent bounce back on some b.s. financial news story should be heard soon enough.

  3. RonBC Says:

    Here is the $SPX. Price bounced off of the Fibonacci 38.2% retracement level and bounced back about 350 points to the breakdown level at 4170 and sold off again. Price has now come down and broken below the Fib 38.2% retracement level. The next significant price point is the Fibonacci 50% retracement level at 3500. Sure glad I don’t own any of this…………….

    you’ve done an admirable job of advising us all and avoiding this mess……tnx for your time and inputs…

  5. Ron/bc Says:

    Thanks Bruce.
    I don’t know what the answer is to trading the markets as they are erratic and vulnerable to so many events, both real and imagined. That’s why I still to stock charts rather than stock stories. Thank you for the bullish/bearish stats as they tell us extremes in sentiment. Also very important.

  6. David Says:

    I’m not sure if it means anything but the 30 year US Treasury yield has hit resistance vs the spx500 on a monthly chart.

  7. David Says:

    IWM has also hit support
