Investors have officially become convinced that stocks do not decline.  Sentiment readings are literally off the charts this week with the AAII small investor  bullish sentiment survey surging 9% to 57.6%.  That’s the highest reading since January 2007.  Charles Rotblut of AAII is reporting that 60% would be a two standard deviation event.
