Investor Sentiment Readings

Each weekend Barron's includes in its Market Laboratory section a set of numbers under the heading "Investor Sentiment Readings." In that space, four different investor polls are included to gauge the degree of bullishness and bearishness in the stock market. The figures are given for the latest week and the period two and three weeks back for comparison purposes. Here's a random sample of what the latest week's figures might look like. Remember that these numbers are contrary indicators. Too much bullishness is bad. Too much bearishness is good.
