High optimism and low neutrality may be a risk for equities

The rising tide of optimism on equities has lifted near-term sentiment readings on the EuroSTOXX Index to highly elevated levels. This has occurred despite a continued weakening in investors’ strategic bias on equities from recent highs. In short, high optimism on the near-term outlook is set against a less upbeat view on the medium-term prospects for markets. It is also set against increasingly high levels of investor ‘certainty’ on the near-term outlook, based on the sentix Neutrality indices. It is a combination that points to the potential for increased equity volatility in the near-term. See Charts 2-4 and 7, p2 and 3.
