TD Ameritrade IMX  
Released On 12/4/2017 12:30:00 PM For Nov, 2017
PriorActual
Level7.40 8.53 

Highlights
Boosted by net buying and higher relative volatility, the IMX saw its largest single-month increase ever in November, increasing over 15 percent to hit an all-time high of 8.53. TD Ameritrade clients were net buyers for a 10th consecutive month, positioning their accounts for more exposure to equity markets. Lower overall volatility in the S&P 500 had the effect of increasing relative volatility of many widely held names, including Apple and General Electric.

Definition
The Investor Movement Index, (or the IMX), is a proprietary, behavior-based index created by TD Ameritrade designed to provide insight into Main Street sentiment. The IMX measures what investors are actually doing, and how they are actually positioned in the markets. The IMX does this by using data representing the holdings/positions, trading activity and other data from an anonymous sample from six million funded accounts. These data are used to create a snapshot that can be monitored over time, or compared to other market indicators, to suggest the current sentiment of the real portfolios held by retail investors.  Why Investors Care
