Daily Sentiment Index

Discussion in 'Trading' started by FienyxTrader, Jun 20, 2001.

  1. Does anyone know where or how i can get the Daily Sentiment Index from? Anyone currently using it?

    Any thoughts much appriciated!
  2. I believe the Daily Sentiment Index (DSI) is a proprietary indicator of Jake Bernstein. You would have to pay to receive it or subscribe to one of Bernstein's services ---- one of his several web sites can be found through any search engine. I've never used it and have no opinion about it.
  3. Yes, I do believe it is from Jake Bernstein, but i was wondering if there is anything out there that is similar to it or something that measures the sentiment of traders before a trading day...
  4. To the best of my knowledge, Bernstein's survey is the only available one that measures trader sentiment daily (though I believe he samples afternoon opinion after the close and not morning opinion just before the open). There are several weekly and biweekly sentiment indexes which are widely followed including Investors Intelligence, the AAII Index, the Consensus Index and Market Vane. Many people also follow put/call ratios and the Rydex funds (Nova and Ursa) on a regular basis to gauge sentiment.

    Thanks for your replies, they are much valued. Where would you find any of the Indexes which you spoke of?? Are they in publications?
    Thanks in advance!
  6. Fienyx ---- Barron's is an easy way to check the standard weekly and biweekly sentiment indicators every Saturday. They are all listed together near the back of the Market Watch section. Put/Call ratios are available from a variety of sources ----- the best is the CBOE's own web site: http://www.cboe.com. You can also get hourly p/c ratio updates from http://www.teachtrade.com. Rydex data is again available from a great many sources: I personally use http://www.decisionpoint.com after each trading day and also observe Price Headley's interpretation of Rydex at http://www.marketmavens.com.
  7. Thanks a bunch Armaniman!!! I shall be looking up those very soon!
  8. Looking for an online resource for sentiment surveys ( Investors Intelligence, AAII Index, Market Vane etc.) . Help very much appreciated.
