Seismic Sentiment Shift

By -

Since the market bottomed on June 16th, the /ES has gone up hundreds of points (well over 300) and the Dow Industrials is up thousands. There has been an enormous change in sentiment, with the consensus being that the brief bear market (if you want to call it that) experienced during a tiny portion of this year was all the suffering that was required to clear out all the sins of the past quarter century.

Besides the fact that Zerohedge has more bullish articles every week than even the likes of Yahoo Finance, even Elliott Wave has thrown in the proverbial towel, declaring their “alternate scenario‘ (AKA the bear market ain’t happening) is in play. It wasn’t that long ago that they were stone-cold certain that we’d be plunging non-stop. This afternoon, hat in hand, they meekly sent out an ‘Interim Bulletin” (never a good sign) that raised the white flag. Their mojo is gone. Totally. Elliott Wave has SURRENDERED.
