I am always confused as to the market sentiment indicator, does yours also show 76% of open positions are bearish or short on the market too? It’s a one way chart and been bearish with the ST continually suggesting upward movement but such huge short positions mean a great deal of losses are out there which surprises me?

I’m looking at the Wall Street Market Sentiment and it says 75% are short on this market and it’s been high for a while as on all indices so everyone is losing money on a graph the ST says is still going up, FTSE and others are even higher against the market, sceptical so does yours say the same?

Hi  &    The market sentiment short/long figures are retail traders and are known as a contrary indicator for good reason. Many good reasons actually, not least hope over analysis (the punt) but also institution's attempts to wrong-foot retail and provide contracts to buy. 

For institutional positions you need to look at the COT report.

Large speculators are long.

This video (strong language) explains much about the recent moves, a bit old now and may lose relevance as we move into a tapering phase (if we move into a tapering phase).

    • Just wondering if anybody received the dividends payments from Burford Capital. Believe the payment date was last Friday (18/06) but I still haven't had any paid into my ISA account. Thanks, Jeeve
