    Does anyone know where one can get free and timely AAII sentiment numbers?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can get 'em from Barron's, but they're a bit old. If you want timely reports, I think you've gotta fork over some $$$.

    thanks but I'm looking for AAII numbers. Similar in terms of what they try to do but they are different.

    Interestingly enough right now the AAII/II divergence is quite marked. The II numbers are pointing to a lot of bulls vs. bears. Which for a contrarian would mean that the market will move down.

    But the AAII numbers are showing the opposite! They are showing a majority of bears and a minority of bulls. Which for a contrarian would mean the market will move higher.

    Of course, I'm not at all implying that one trade off one of these but the divergence is interesting nevertheless.
