Inflows and Outflows
An interesting thing to study are the inflows and outflows to the market. Trim Tabs does a good job of looking at the money coming in from mutual funds, corporate buybacks, insider transactions, paychecks and so on.
A predicted inflow comes in on Fridays at ends of months, and a predicted outflow accompanied by a feeling of revulsion presumably comes around April 15.
