INVESTOR SENTIMENT READINGS
High bullish readings in the Consensus stock index or in the Market Vane stock index usually are signs of Market tops; low ones, market bottoms.

1. The next 48h are very bullish indeed as not only the 3rd and final Jupiter Uranus conjunctions happens on the 4th but also at the same day Venus is in an exact trigon to both - interestingly on the 4th we also have a Solar Eclipse which on the other hand is rather negative as it is in a square to Saturn and happens in Saturns sign of Capricorn. The point with astrology is though that the day the stars align is not the day the turns happen but where the move is initiated - the move though follows a few days later usually. This combination is a perfect setup for a top within a few days. Actually we only have one missing link left on the technical front which is for the NDX to perform a weekly 13 which requires a new weekly high. The Dow produced one last week, SPX is already set. Also are we about te reach with the DOW the level for a right shoulder at 11800. Sentiment remains at extreme bullish levels even creeps higher therefor starting Wednesday we are on Defcon 1 for stocks. VIX and Bonds confirm a top at hand for stocks as both have formed a bottom ( in case of Bonds for now)
