We know from sentiment readings from AAII this week that bullish sentiment among individual investors show that most do not expect the market to roll over now. A nice illustration of that sentiment change can be found in Jason Goepfert's smart money / dumb money confidence index:
As smart as it was to fade negative sentiment back in March, we're dealing with a much different setup right now. One that clearly seems to need a constant stream of positives to keep things moving higher which simply hasn't been happening this week.
