Sentiment Trader is an interesting site worth exploring . . .

The value of Sentiment as an indicator is that when it reaches extremes, it can provide a good contrary signal.

People tend to get bullish after they buy, and bearish after they sell. So what thy actually do -- and then say -- can get reflected in these signals.

For a primer, see this report: Contrary Indicators of the 2000 – 2003 Bear Market
