    XAO, DJIA, DJIA futs, HSI, Nikkei, DAX, CAC, and advance/decline on the ASX.

    They map the thinking of the herd and often reveal the thinking of the big money.

    An enhancement to MRC & Co's idea,

    Have a system where upon login you need to select your sentiment i.e. bearish/bullish/neutral via check boxes, this data is then displayed on some sort of oscillator for viewing by ASF members only.

    Sentiment indicators.

    Price, volume, support and resistance, commonly used indicators etc, etc - from that we know where the crowd are entering the market and where their stops are most likely to be.

    Fact: Approx. 5 - 10% of traders are consistently profitable. The rest are just donating their hard earned cash to the winners

    All we need to do is make the above work for us - "trade what you see, not what you would like to see"

    There is no need for analysis paralyses, most of us get happily stuck in this rut for the rest of our trading career, hunting for the next best indicator, strategy ----------

    Sorry for repeating the same old know all "phrases"

    Cutz, don't think a survey would be useful, as some would use reverse psychology just as an answer and some are bearish, yet still get caught up on buying the top of extended moves or vice-versa.

    It's obvious just by sifting through and reading who is doing what.

    Jap Candlesticks and Volume with OHLC graphs are good I find. Everyone is different though.

    I'll second that. It's always a good indication if I've loaded up and soon thereafter it's being discussed on ASF.
    The above post is entirely fictional and any resemblance to any stock living or dead is purely coincidental.

    If the DOW is green and Rick Santelli is red , you know something is not right. http://www.cnbc.com/id/15840232?video=1105763444&play=1
