A Sentiment Indicator for Contrarian Investing

June 28, 2018

The U.S. Global investment team created a sentiment indicator of 126 indices, sectors, currencies, commodities and markets to measure cash flow levels and volatility. Frank Holmes explains how members of the team use this indicator to monitor the percentage of positions that have five-day moving averages above or below the 20-day moving averages, in relation to the S&P 500. This week the indicator fell below 20 percent which Frank views as a signal that markets are oversold and that now could be a time to buy.

For Frank’s full explanation, watch the video below!
