Fintel Market and Sector Indicators

Introduction

This page shows a number of macro market indicators generated from the Fintel insider trading database.

The Insider Sell/Buy Ratio charts show the ratio of insider selling v. insider buying. High peaks indicate a large proportion of selling vs. buying, which suggests a negative outlook. Low troughs suggest a positive outlook. Overlaid on each chart is a historical chart of closing prices for an appropriate benchmark. In many cases, you will find a correlation between peaks in the sell/buy ratio and peaks in the benchmark, which suggests the sell/buy ratio can be used as a useful leading indicator of market prices.
