CNA market talk forum

Postby Starry » 04 Oct 2007, 13:41

I just realise that the CNA market talk forum can be quite a good sentiment indicator. Looking at some of the post, you can sense the greed and fear of the participants in the market. It's pretty obvious. The noise there is greater than the trading pit itself.

Starry,

You are absolutely right. I frequent that forum often mostly to get a feel of the mass market sentiment.

In fact I also use the number of daily unique visitors to my blog as an indicator. Just before the correction I was averaging almost 1,200 visitors daily. In August, that number dropped to 500, and now its "rebounded" to 800.

Another good sign is the number of IPOs. Whenever you have a large number of IPOs being released and most of them double in price upon opening, you can be sure that the market is almost reaching its short term peak.

People say that you can never predict the market, but if fact you don't need to be a TA expert to see the signs. People just don't see them because they are too greedy.
