Take something like this, along with the current Wall Street protest marches, and you have some of the sentiment ingredients of a significant bottom coming very soon.

September 30, 2011 close

NYA - since the weekly 34,55,1 MACD is now approaching its zero line for the first time in months, it makes sense to post this price chart here with this thread about sentiment

weekly closes chart for the NYSE Composite Index:

fyi - early morning of October 3, 2011

October 3, 2011 - briefing.com -  Market Snapshot http://www.briefing.com/investor/markets/stock-market-update/2011/10/3/more-of-the-same.htm#ixzz1Zik3HYY3
   
More of the Same / 03-Oct-11 08:10 ET - Market is Closed
[BRIEFING.COM] S&P futures vs fair value: -0.40. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: -9.50. In the final session of September, stocks suffered another loss, which only added to their poor monthly performance and their worst quarterly showing in almost three years. Yet the same crucial themes that weighed on sentiment in recent months continue into the new quarter. More directly, underwhelming data from Europe and news that Greece will come short of its deficit target for 2011 have taken Europe's bourses down sharply and, by extension, put pressure on domestic stock futures. That said, premarket pressure hasn't been too intense. There are a couple of noteworthy releases on tap for today. Both the latest ISM Manufacturing Index and construction spending numbers are due at 10:00 AM ET. Monthly motor vehicle sales numbers will be released intermittently.
