After Hitting 3 Year High, AAII Bullish Sentiment Plunges By Most In 2 Years

Tyler Durden's picture

For a stark demonstration of market momentum euphoria look no further than the AAII weekly bullish/neutral/bearish sentiment. After hitting 57.56% in the week ended November 11, the highest since 2007, bullish sentiment plunged by 17.56%, to 40.00%, the biggest drop since January 2009, and the fourth biggest shift in sentiment since 2006. Alas, this is the kind of bipolar sentiment shift that will accompany a market in which everything continues to correlate with near precision to the dollar, and in which no bad news matter until they matter, and from all in buying the mood shifts to relentless selling.

The complete corruption is disgusting isnt it Joe? Or are you 'trading it'?

yipcarl's picture

Joe...the market went down almost 7 days in a row, just because it's up 1% today means NOTHING.  IT's a retrace in a downtrend, at least for now.  Plus the gov't is pulling out all the stops to make their charade look good.  GM.

The market was oversold and we were due for a bounce...plain and simple...what happens after this bounce remains to be seen.

Vampyroteuthis infernalis's picture

Bill, you are correct the market was slightly oversold. If the market has sold more than it did, it would have been just a correction. Since the market is bouncing back as it did, much greater rumblings are going on.

Bill Lumbergh's picture

From a technical standpoint the indices have run up on low volume and have gaps everywhere (especially the NASDAQ) so if this is the beginning of a new move up the foundation is built on quicksand.

Nice chart on European Bank holders of periphery (Ireland, Portugal, Greece)

Really?  I guess it didn't account for today? Market up 100, ummm, on what?  O yea POMO, artificial buying indirectly buying securities in a 'free market'.  I almost forgot.  This indicators mean nothing.  When the powers that be get short that's when the market will fall and not one second before.  All these indicators can be toyed with.  The job report has come in like 2-6k jobs better every month.  YEA sure.  lies.

As they are all backslapping and blowing themselves over the GM deal and how great it was to bail them out I find it revisionist of how the unions and GM and liberal media has somehow forgotten the bailout of GM was Bush's idea.   I hated it and think it nothing to be proud of but you really can't ignore facts, can you?  Well I guess we can in america.  Unions never said thank you to Bush.  Of course they also neglect to admit that GMAC had as much to do with bogus mortgages as anyone yet that hardly ever gets mentioned either.  They are never id'd as evil bankers.  BofA must need a union and then they would be in so many folks cross hairs.  I have to GM cars and I wish this thing would be a total flop but when you get the benefit of a stacked deck it's hard for the house to lose.

Relaaaax...Gentle Ben-evolent rests his hand gently yet firmly on the helm.  Market-force waves may crash 'round, but fear is unfounded.

No worries, the dollar is down and the market is ramping.

About two months ago GM bought Americredit... a subprime auto lender based in Fort Worth TX. They did this because they understand the ultimate truth: YOU CANNOT MAKE MONEY SELLING CARS. YOU CAN ONLY MAKE MONEY FINANCING THEM.

Take a look at Toyota. Last year, pre-recall, something on the order of $1.6 billion in profit. But a $2.6 billion profit at financing division... and a $1 billion loss in manufacturing.

Printfaster's picture

Prophet, the idea that you can make money on sub prime finance in cars is about as good as the money made by Novastar in housing sub prime finance.  Then there were Fannie and Freddie.

Basically finance is good while it lasts, but it does not last.  Especially sub prime.
