    Is this a contrarian indicator, with it that high? Time to reduce holdings?


    Or is this measure not very relevant these days with the Fed's actions determining bull vs. bear, not economic measures vs market value?

    The Fed has things under control. "Investors" = Fed.

    These high bullish sentiment indicators combined with high valuations do portend risks for equities. A high cash position feels uncomfortable even though it's probably a smart allocation. Feeling like your wrong or early and out of it is a true contrarian position.

    The dumb Federal Reserve doesn't know how to take its foot off the gas pedal. That's what the bull bet is, just like it was going into 2006-2007.
