Bullish Sentiment Crashes, Searching 'Sell Stocks' On Google Just Hit Levels Not Seen Since 2008… Something Isn't Right!


It looks like all of the negative talk from some high-profile investors in recent days has made its way into the heads of individual investors, causing them to turn increasingly bearish on equities. According to this week’s sentiment survey from AAII, bullish sentiment crashed from 45.1% down to 29.35%. That’s the largest one-week decline since April 2013! With bullish sentiment now sporting a 20-handle, it’s also safe to say that the streak of sub-50% readings that has been in place for 150 straight weeks now won’t be broken anytime soon.

This comes at a time where regional stock markets are at lofty levels disconnected from fundamental in a blowoff top phase.

As high yield unwinds and all time highs were thwarted prior week, let’s hope that Trump can pass through his pro-economic growth strategy, otherwise a disappointment phase is next.
