August 2, 2014:  The 2CS Indicator History according to Larry Moores1 as of August 1, 2014. 

Larry Moores wrote "Here's what he does. He uses the daily vix and cboe put call ratios and takes the summation of the product of these two numbers for the last five days. I believe he feels this compensates for any games that might be played by the boys."

APRIL 26, 2011 : 2CS

"My favorite and simplest sentiment measure of the US stock market is the 2CS. Take each day's CBOE put/call ratio and multiply by each day's VIX or VXO (I have used the VXO since 1996). Sum the last five days of the daily product of VXO times P/C. When that five day total or 2CS gets under 70 we can start to wonder about the possibility an intermediate term top somewhere ahead. Sometimes the market will stall or go sideways a bit and relieve this condition, and then go higher again. But sometimes 2CS will continue to fall as the market moves up and get below 60. 2CS below 60 is almost always indicative of a significant decline within a week or two."
