Investor sentiment drops to levels associated with bottoms instead of tops

A recent post by Bespoke Investment Group (here) addressed the sharp drop in investor sentiment.  “Even though the S&P 500 remains near its highs of the bull market, nearly all the bullish sentiment that was built up during the rally has now been given back.  People like to say that the individual investor is always the last to get in and the first to get out.  This time at least, the individual is making a quick exit.  Will they be too early?”    As most of you know, when the bullish sentiment is low, the odds for a rising stock market is high.  Jeb Terry, Sr. May 19, 2011
