SPX500Retail speculators remain very net-short the SPX500, which tracks the fair value of the S&P E-mini futures price. A contrarian view of crowd sentiment favors further S&P 500 gains.

Trade Implications SPX 500 We wrote last week that stock markets were at a potentially pivotal turning point, and the fact that they’ve now turned higher suggests bulls remain in control. We’ll need to see a much larger shift in crowd sentiment and price before turning bearish on the S&P 500.
