Home > Fear & Greed Index > FEAR/GREED SENTIMENT INDEX – AUGUST 10, 2017


August 11th, 2017

The “Fear/Greed Sentiment Index: What Emotion is Driving the Market Now?” reading is in the “Greed” range at 31. This indicator is now suggesting that the general stock market is approaching a buying opportunity. That signal will be triggered by a reading below 25 in the “Extreme Fear” zone.

Thus as far as sentiment goes, an important signal may come as early as Friday or Monday. This would be a “buy the dip” strategy which one day will prove to be wrong. But this market has been really resilient to declines and until proven otherwise, I’d expect another rally to new highs to occur when this current decline ends.
