Maybe it's just me, but I found the old blogger sentiment table (with poll date and S&P % change) more readable and useful than the newer bullish\bearish graph. Would you please consider switching back to the old format, or possibly publishing both? Thanks.

Popular blogs may not be the best place to find profitable ideas. This poll has become a good short term contrary indicator. Every time it gets released and shows that the popular bloggers are bearish, the market pops. Ever since it started the popular blogger sentiment has been more or less negative and the market has kept going up.

What determines popularity. Bearish blogs are more popular. Blogs which are wrong for over a year are more popular. Blogs which promote conspiracy are more popular. Blogs which offer newsletters are more popular. Blogs good at marketing are more popular. So if you don't want to beat the market just follow the popular blogs!!!

Pradeep, that's the most ridiculous thing I've read in a very long time. Define popular? I imagine that all the blogs in this pool would fit your definition. Yet, week after week, there's no consensus among these bloggers. So how the hell can "all popular blogs" be contrary indicators and under-performing the market?

Barring two bullish readings the sentiment has been bearish since this poll started. That is called consensus.
Tickersense in their selection methodology have chosen these to present popular blogger. Plus it represents the most visited blogs by site visits measures.
The data speaks for itself.

Wait! Trader Tim is NEGATIVE on the markets??? What a SHOCKER!
