Investor Sentiment Getting Greedy? Seems Unwarranted!

Several indicators of investor sentiment are showing rising “greed” levels. And when investors get greedy, it tends to imply that we are nearing a top.

BUT, I am unsure why greed levels are so high, when so many assets have little to brag about over the past couple of years!

Today’s “weekly” chart mash-up shows the performance of 6 different instruments across various asset classes since December 2021… and gold has been the best performer at +13%. The others have literally gone nowhere. Basically flat.

So perhaps all this excitement is a bit overdone. And maybe investors need to be more selective in choosing assets with good risk/reward setups.
