Lowry's stats not looking up

Whether markets are green or red at the end of the day often masks their internal health. Bear markets can maul prices down on any volume, but bull markets need buying pressure to keep them going. Think of shooting water from your garden hose up into the sky, it can only stay up as long as the pressure compels it. After that the water necessarily must fall back to earth. One of the more enlightening indicators of market health is the Lowry's index of buying versus selling pressure. Paul Desmond, President of Lowry Research, was recently featured on CNBC's “Fast Money Final Call,” discussing why the data is suggesting a more substantial correction may be still to come.

    The bears are back in town.
    I have lost more money in the past two month trying to rebuld my portfolio.
    I am fed up hearing about green shoots. Any rally from here, I will be selling and not get back in t'ill we hit the March lows. I don't care if I miss out on any rally.
    It is just too easy to lose money.

    I use this as a contrary indicator, and it works like a charm:
    The American Associaton of Individual Investors sentiment index shows 28.5% bulls and 48.5% bears right now. On March 9 it was an unprecedented 20/70.
    The ECRI WLI enterd into a +2.6 territory. The US recession is over. I would not sell. I would rather buy.
