The Investor Sentiment Wheel

This is a classic for all investors.  The investor sentiment wheel illustrates the various emotions investors experiences during an investment cycle.  Of course, most investors panic at the bottom and sell low and then turn around and buy high.

Back in 2008 and then again in 2009, we posted up this picture of investor psychology illustrated.  

A new rendition has been created by Trustable Gold who sent us this new graphic on the roller coaster that is investor sentiment, embedded below:

What's your take on where we're at currently in the cycle? Obviously Ben Bernanke and QE3 throw another wrench into the equation encouraging "risk on."
