Sentiment update

We have some short term erosion of bullish sentiment which confirms my view that the bounce due next week for 2 weeks has a high probability as the ISEE not shown blow has had 2 days below 100 in a row and the 10 day MA gas dropped to 108 critical would be a level of 100 or below and the one Rydex has dropped to 51 which is an extreme level (See below) although a different model comes to a drastic different level but the model below has worked quite well so far. Also Investor Intel. has dropped a bit to 38.9 bulls vs. 22.2 bears which still leaves some downside scope as the bears stay stubbornly low around the March lows we had 54% bears.
