AAII Investor Sentiment

The AAII Investor Sentiment survey provides traders with valuable insights into the overall market sentiment, enabling them to gauge the prevailing bullish or bearish bias among individual investors and make informed trading decisions.
WHAT IS THE AAII INVESTOR SENTIMENT?
The American Association of Individual Investors (AAII) surveys a number of individual investors and asks where they think the market will go in the next 6 months. This survey is taken every 7 days to accumulate weekly data and history of the overall individual bias in the market. The survey ends and is updated by Wednesday at 11:59 p.m.
HOW WE USE THIS TO TRADE?
Within each vertical bar, there are three segments. In order of stacking from the bottom, the values read as bullish, neutral and bearish. The yellow line crossing through the bar chart is the bull-to-bear spread. A positive spread means that the overall sentiment is leaning bullish. And a negative spread indicates bearishness in overall sentiment.
