    If we were at a major bottom I would expect something like 80%/20% sentiment.
  2. So long as the "money pump spigot" is open, there will be no recession nor big decline. Sad to say, but nothing else really matters much.

    When the Powers start to reign-in liquidity and credit, that's the time to watch out!
  3. So they asked 101% of traders. Hmm...
  4. On a canadian website the poll was more like 30% 'a new bear market' and 70% 'temporary correction'.

    And who trusts internet polls anyway?

    54% in stocks! my guess is that we will need at least a 10% market drop to create some healthy pessimism.
