Highlights
A seventh straight month of net buying including concentrated buying in volatile names made for a sharp 5.1 percent jump in the investor movement index to 7.45. TD Ameritrade clients were net buyers in August of Amazon and Alphabet despite monthly pullbacks for both companies. General Electric and Alibaba were also popular during the month. Clients were net sellers of Wells Fargo and Twitter.

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
