We’ve got very elevated bullish sentiment in the markets at the moment. According to the Association of Individual Investors, bullish sentiment is the highest it’s been since the top roughly 27 months ago, and so people think that the bull market is back. Our guest this week on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio, Mr. Murray Gunn, says that’s another aspect of corrective waves in the first part of an ongoing bear market. He discusses with your host, Dennis Tubbergen, that people think that the bull market is back because they don’t want to think about a bear market. The point of realization comes in the third wave down; that’s when we can see quite a dramatic turndown in the stock markets.
