    I've gotten some requests for data sources, and since I'm not writing regularly anymore I figured I would just share of the best free sources of sentiment data that I know of and which I used for my sentiment updates.

    1) Put/Call Ratio: For this I use (here's the link: and I enter in the ticker symbol $CPC. This can also be broken up into two parts, equity only and index only, ticker symbols $CPCE and $CPCI. I typically add a 5 and 10 day moving average to smooth out the fluctuations.

    3) Active Investment Managers: Tracks how active managers are positioned. Here's the link:

    4) AAII: Tracks individual investors, also allows you to download all previous data in excel format for analysis. Here's the link:

    5) Investors Intellegence: Follows newsletter writers, I wish there was a more complete downloadable record, but or well at least it's free. Here's the link:

    Hope it's useful!
