It's certainly not my intent, as a private retirement income analyst, to become a trendy market timer, but I do my market homework each day, particularly with regard to sentiment. I use it primarily these days as an assist in entries and exits of longer term positions. My "stuff" uses market information, not polls. It looks pretty awful as of tonight for "generic" US Index stocks for the near term. Also gold is imploding under $800 as I write this. Be careful! It might be that someone knows something we don't.
