Overheating Economy And Inflation

Moving on to market sentiment, the percent of bulls has dropped way down in a couple weeks, but it still seems too high to me. Also, I'm thinking that after a period of about four months where sentiment was overly bullish and the market continued to rise, we need to see sentiment really bottom out before it starts to favor stocks again. So, from a contrarian point-of-view, I think sentiment continues to work against stock prices.

And speaking of sentiment, there were some comments I read this morning about sentiment towards bonds being overwhelmingly bearish, and this may mean that we are close to a short-term bottom in bond prices. Very interesting.
