In our post in mid June titled, Market Adjusting To Slower Growth Economic Environment, we noted the put/call ratio had climbed to 1.1 and was at a level last reached at the market's low in March 2009. At the time of our post, the S&P 500 Index was trading at 1,271. Since that time the put/call ratio has declined to .56 and the S&P has rallied to 1,339, an advance of 5.3%.
