Historic Optimism in the Stock Market – What Does it Mean?

 

Historic Optimism in the Stock Market – What Does it Mean?

By
Elliott Wave International

How do you know when the market is getting ready
for a change? This quote from Bob Prechter’s best-selling book, Conquer
the Crash
, looks at investor psychology at extremes in the markets:

The engine of high stock market valuation is widely shared optimism.
The greater the degree of the advance that is ending, the greater the
optimism at its peak. Optimism also tends to remain strong in the early
stages of a bear market …

Today, how optimistic
are market participants? Bob dedicated an entire issue of his Elliott
Wave Theorist
market letter to looking at the level of optimism in
the markets today. These two charts, excerpted from that letter, show
just a piece of the story. Learn how you can get the entire issue, with
15 eye-opening charts, for free.

“Charts tell the truth. Let’s look at some charts …

“Figure 9
shows that in the second-to-last week of October, the public poured more
money into various U.S. stock funds than at any time in at least seven
years, which includes the 2007 stock market top.

“All this stock buying has created a lopsided investment ratio among fund
sectors. As shown in Figure 10, the percentage of money in Rydex’s conservative
money-market funds as opposed to speculative stock market funds is the
lowest since 2001, which is just after the all-time high in the real value
for stocks.”

These are just two of the 15 charts that you can see for free. For a limited
time, Elliott Wave International is giving away a full issue of Robert
Prechter’s Elliott Wave Theorist. In this 10-page issue, you
