- Exuberance - This is when everybody is excited and talking about how well they are doing in the stock market. I don't see much of this happening yet.
- FOMO investing - This is when people start investing more in stocks because they're afraid of missing out on what everybody is exuberant about. It seems to me there is still a lot of cash on the sidelines.
- All stocks advance - This is when good, as well as bad stocks keep going up. There is no differentiation as investors put money into index funds/ETFs, driving up the valuation of all stocks. Not happening yet, since there are a number of stocks still near or at the 52 week lows.
