The Shareholder Movement Index, or the IMXSM, is a proprietary, behavior-based index created by TD Ameritrade that aggregates Main Street shareholder positions and activity to measure what shareholders are actually doing and how they are positioned in the markets.
The September 2016 Shareholder Movement Index for the four weeks ending September 30, 2016, reveals:
Reading: 5.49 (contrast to 5.26 in August)
Trend direction: Positive
Trend length: 2 months
Score relative to historic ranges: High
The IMX rose 4.37% percent to 5.49 in September as retail shareholders raised their equity exposure for a second month. Despite a brief spike mid-month, volatility of the S&P 500 remained low, assisting to drive up relative volatility in some widely held positions.
“Clients were net buyers in September, increasing their equity exposure throughout the month,” said JJ Kinahan, chief market strategist for TD Ameritrade. “Together with the high relative volatility of some widely held positions, the IMX soared to its highest point in two years at a time when the major equity markets were at or near their all-time highs as well. As earnings season gets underway in earnest this month, and the election looms, it will be interesting to watch whether clients change up some of their investment decisions after a couple months of volatility being quiet.”
