Dump money indicates we should be more cautious

From Guy M Lerner’s blog the dump money indicator for the week seems to show exteme bullishness. This typically is not a good sign. We can’t tell much from the smart money since it is more neutral. By all means it could still rally for weeks.

The “Dumb Money” indicator is shown in figure 1. The “Dumb Money” indicator looks for extremes in the data from 4 different groups of investors who historically have been wrong on the market: 1) Investor Intelligence; 2) Market Vane; 3) American Association of Individual Investors; and 4) the put call ratio.

The “Smart Money” indicator is shown in figure 2. The “smart money” indicator is a composite of the following data: 1) public to specialist short ratio; 2) specialist short to total short ratio; 3) SP100 option traders. The “smart money” is neutral.
