Some members like the Fear & Greed Index, http://money.cnn.com/data/fear-and-greed/,
It’s an investor sentiment gauge of sorts.

Another sentiment index that may be of interest is Investopedia’s Anxiety Index. http://www.investopedia.com/anxiety-index/
Investopedia uses the site visitors to calculate the index. When increased numbers are looking at terms that have negative sentiment, such as short selling and volatility, that is and indication of anxiousness. If more topics pertain to strong points in the economy, then that suggest less anxiety, which would be a bullish.

Interesting but I consider both anecdotal evidence, until back-tested. And I can’t find past readings, which prevents it from being correlated with past market action.
