This is a cross-post from TradeTheSentiment.com Before we get started…its VERY easy to look back and say “yes…that would have been a buy signal”.  If the market worked with hindsight, we’d all be millionaires. For this approach, I’m going to use the thought that the masses are ‘wrong’.  That is…when Sentiment gets extremely bearish or […]

I had quite a lot of feedback from my Signal to Noise Ratio & Twitter post last week. Most of the feedback was positive and in agreement with my argument that twitter can become something that overloads you with a lot of noise.
