Highlights
TD Ameritrade clients increased their exposure to the stock market and their relative exposure to high volatility stocks during August, making for a sharp gain in the investor movement index to 5.82 from 5.45 in July. Popular names once again were Facebook and Amazon while Ford and AT&T were popular dividend plays. The firm's clients were net sellers of Qualcomm and Cisco.

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
