I believe that SentimenTrader is one of the best analytical tools out there, giving traders a genuine edge in today’s uncertain markets. Jason provides a full list of sentiment and breadth indicators along with instructions for their interpretation. He also sends subscribers a daily emailed newsletter that I consider worth the subscription cost by itself.

Jason Goepfert’s SentimenTrader daily report is in a class by itself. Over the years, the data and analysis provided by this publication have proved insightful to me in my own analysis of the market — helping me maintain my top ranking nationally as a market timer with Timer Digest. This is the first time I have endorsed a market letter, and I am pleased to do so.
