The bars in the "Investor Sentiment" table are based on the readings recorded by our most reliable sentiment indicators. 

When there is excessive optimism (i.e. the caret is pointed in the red zone), then there is a high probability of seeing weaker equity prices in the indicated time frame. 

Conversely, if investors are excessively pessimistic, and the caret is pointing in the green area, then higher stock prices are more likely than significantly lower ones.
