I found this interesting. Expectations for big EOY rally, assisted by Tax Reform + Seasonals? Are expectations too high? Beats me.

I don't actually keep a record of the equity only data, but I do keep the data of the total ISEE data and present the longer term chart below since inception. As both of these charts show, sometimes these high water marks can mean something, but the lower numbers do have a better consistency as to times in which we tend to have moments of capitulation. In any event, it's probably best to use this data as a near term warning shot of general (emotional) sentiment, the ebb and flow at any given time, but may not be immediately tradable.
Thanks for the head's up! Fib __________________ Dave's LinkedIn Profile Technical Watch Twitter Page Technical Watch Facebook Page "As for it being different this time, it is different every time.
