Investor Class Holding Steady

Share this post

Despite a sharp decline in investor optimism in the recent months, the size of the investor class holds steady. We define households with $10K+ in the stock market to be members of the investor class. 

In November 2007, the size was 53%.  It shrank to 41% in August 2009.  Since then, it has been gradually increasing and the size for September 2011 is 48%.  The average for 2010 was 49%.

All statistics shown are 3-month rolling averages.

IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index for investors shown in the chart.  Index readings above 50 indicate optimism; below 50 indicate pessimism.
