Sentiment indicators

Sentiment indicators

The general feeling of investors about the state of the market, such as whether they are bullish or bearish.

Market Sentiment

A subjective measure of how investors are feeling about a security or market. Generally speaking, market sentiments are positive when stock prices are going up and negative when they are going down. Because feelings sometimes change more slowly than a market's underlying fundamentals, market sentiment helps explain why securities have a tendency to become either overvalued or undervalued. Some investors plan to make investment decisions in a way that disregards market sentiment, while others attempt to profit from it.
