How it Works
Using data from one of the nation’s largest online investment communities, the IMX gives you a snapshot of investor sentiment. It does this by analyzing and averaging the holdings/positions, trading activity, and other data from real portfolios held by real investors each month and boils it down to an index.
How to Read the Data
- Read IMX trends over time and combine with other market indicators and opinion-based research to get a more complete view of retail investor sentiment.
If a score increases month over month, that likely means that investors are getting more bullish. If a score decreases month over month, investors are becoming bearish (or at least less bullish than before).
