Complacency about personal finances, stock-market & economy has bottomed.

Composites created from U.S geography limited internet searches for 8 search-terms we have found most aligned to uncertainty and fear regarding personal finances, the stock market and the economy have bottomed and appear to be on the rise:

Both the equal-weighted composite and our preferred measure, the “search-volume weighted” composite bottomed in January 2024. This latter measure weighs each search term by the actual number of searches measured for the month as opposed to using the “relative to its history” standard measure such as that provided by Google Trends.

The utility of these measures is amplified once they exceed a threshold of 30 since this is normally a warning of economic recession and increased market volatility and draw downs.

You can see this chart updated every month in the MONTHLY CHARTS menu, in the GOOGLE tab.
