What is Equity Sentiment?
Sentiment uses short-term technical analysis to gauge whether a stock is desirable by investors. As a technical indicator, it focuses on recent trends as opposed to the long-term health of the underlying company. Updates to the company, such as earnings releases, could cause the stock to deviate from current trends. Price action is generally the best indicator of sentiment. For a stock to rise, investors need to feel good about it. Similarly, a stock that is in a downtrend must be out of favor.
Investors Observer‘s Sentiment Indicator takes into account price action and recent volume trends. Increasing volumes often mean that a trend is strengthening, while falling volumes can indicate that a reversal could be imminent. The options market is another place to get sentiment signals. Since options allow investors to bet on the price of a stock, we consider the ratio of calls to puts for stocks where options are available.
