Sentiment

Despite the surprisingly strong correction of the correction Friday and today (the 11th), the Bear might still be lurking. Ned Davis Research (NDR) cites that 5 Outflows from Bear ETFs, usually means 5 more days of weakness. As my fitness motto goes - Pain is just WEAKNESS leaving the body!

Although August has been on the weak side lately, and September and October are as well, TINA currently still exists (There Is No Alternative). Hedges are like Insurance - you should not rejoice if your house does not burn down. In fact, hedges merely freeze the action through potential trouble spots - if your hedge loses money, your portfolio should be gaining more.

The denouement of last week's "correction" is yet to be determined, as Sentiment has quieted down again - as always, we shall know in the fullness of time. The AAII Bears leapt ahead of the Bulls, but these 100 postcards to members were stated before the Friday bounce; the Inv. Intell. Bull/Bear survey (less reliable IMO) is from Brokerage newsletters- both come out mid-week.
