PriorActual
Level5.45 5.45 

Highlights
TD Ameritrade's IMX momentum index was 5.45 in July, remaining unchanged from June's level. Although TD Ameritrade clients were net buyers in July, increasing their exposure to equity markets, lower relative volatility among some of the widely held names, including Apple, Amazon, and General Electric, resulted in no change to the IMX score. Popular net purchases during July were Netflix, which closed at an all-time high early in the period before selling off and ending down nearly 10 percent from June, as well as Amazon and Microsoft, both of which also reached all-time highs during the period and posted upbeat earnings. Dividend payers AT&T and Ford Motor were also net buys. Apparently exiting to take profits, clients were net sellers of some popular titles which posted strong gains in July, including Walmart, Walt Disney, Gilead Sciences and Bristol-Meyers Squibb.

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
