the Bulls Vs the Bears

Commentary

The Big Q: when everyone is Bullish, and has put all their capital to work, where does money come from to drive the market come from? .

Note: the extreme Bullishness we are seeing we last saw in Y 2007 at the crash, in early Y 2005 too.

The Bulls are at  53.1% Vs 57.6 last.

For your reference: The last time we saw the Bulls at  35%, the mark for Bullishness, was in early June 2012 when this rally started.

The Bears are at 15.3% Vs 15.1 last, holding  steady basically for the 3rd wk running.

For your reference: over 35% is the mark to be really be a good Northside indicator. Bearishness hit a 5 yr high at 54.4% the last week of October 2008. The move over 50 took Bearish sentiment to its highest mark since Y 1995. Extreme negative sentiment for sure.

Stay tuned…
