Since the start of the year, we've seen investors remain bullish even in a rough market. Up until recently, investors would head for the hills any time the market ran into trouble, but that hasn't been the case so far this year. Contrarians would argue that this is not good news for the market.
This weekend, our Bespoke Market Poll results showed a continuation of the "bullish in the face of market weakness" trend. While bullish sentiment ticked down one point, it still remains well above the 50% threshold. We still haven't seen a bullish reading below 50% since the end of September 2014.
