 In the future, to avoid duplication of efforts and save time, the Market Sentiment blog: 
will be produced in a weekly Examiner column.

This blog, written for a decade or more, lists and analyzes Sentiment Indicators that have proved most effective in predicting market direction, based on human behavior. Although the Examiner is more friendly to prose commentary, the table will still be posted at the above link, due to production capability. A more comprehensive explanation of the numbers in the matrix will be possible.
