Overview:  A sharp stock market drop is likely in the next few days.  Social mood is sharply down, and the markets are within a day or two of joining the trend.  In the early stages of a trend change there is often confusion and hesitation as forces pull in both directions, and people try to make sense of the changes they are perceiving. Estimated losses for today as high as 1-2%.

Near term outlook: The social mood pattern corresponds with perceptions of destruction, deterioration, and violence or volatility.  Common news themes associated with the current pattern are confusion, and violence or volatility.  The combined pattern at times accompanies violence, instability, terrorist activity, and geopolitical escalation.  Diplomatic endeavors or negotiations are not likely to succeed at this time, as a mood of cooperation is almost non-existent.

Longer term outlook: The social mood trend has turned sharply down; the bounce over the last month appears to be complete.

Today’s social mood signal is -18.2 S&P points.  Markets tend to follow social mood more often than not.
