AAII Sentiment Survey (by

By -

AAII Investor Sentiment for the week ending March 9, 2011 showed little change over the prior report. Those with a bullish outlook over the next six months fell to 36.0% versus 36.8% the prior week and below the historic level of 39.0%.  Those with a bearish outlook fell to 32.3% versus 33.1% in the prior week and above the historic level of 30.0%.  This report has correlated very well with the SPX and implies a move down in equities in the near term.  The question now becomes though is this yet another correlation that has broken down?
