The market continues to advance in spite of continued weakness in the bullish investor sentiment reading from the American Association of Individual Investors. The weekly readings can be somewhat volatile, but looking at the 8-period moving average can smooth out this volatility. The 8-period M.A. of the bullishness reading has declined for ten straight weeks going back to January 14, 2010. Since this is a contrarian indicator, it will be interesting to see how this plays out over the course of the next quarter.
