Max Greed

The CNN Fear & Greed Index has hit 81.

That’s a measure of max greed.

Max Greed

We find the Index useful at extremes.

We are certainly at an extreme level right now.

Meanwhile, the bulls hit 53.4% this week while bears dipped to 20.6%, resulting in a spread of 32.8%.

A level above 30% is concerning.

The spread can go higher, and there’s more room for an increase in bulls.

However, the bullish and greedy outlook is coming at a time when the outlook for forward returns is dismal.

Time for hedges…
