December 31st, 2017

The “Fear/Greed Sentiment Index: What Emotion is Driving the Market Now?” reading has a current reading of 53 which is in the “Neutral” zone. This allows the market to go in either direction so it is neither a selling or a buying area.

This indicator has remained in the “Greed” area for most of December which is surprising when you consider the duration and extent of this rally. While recent buying opportunities have come when this indicator gets a reading of 25 or lower, the market may continue to rally without any resistance.

Today’s “Neutral” reading is a small move in the direction towards “Extreme Fear” and may be suggesting that an oversold/pessimistic bottom is coming in the first week or two of 2018. That would present a chance to get back onboard the market for another ride up to new highs.
