Bullish Sentiment Jumps to a Two Year High

Individual investors are finally turning a little more bullish.  According to the weekly sentiment survey from the American Association of Individual Investors (AAII), bullish sentiment saw its largest weekly increase since June 2011.  With an increase of 8.4 percentage points, bullish sentiment rose from 43.94% to 52.34%.  This is the first reading above 50% since February 2012, and it's the highest reading since January 2011.  There's nothing better than a market breaking out to new highs to draw investors back into the pool.
