January 26, 2016:  The 2CS Indicator History as of today's market close has turned up from what has typically been a very good "buy zone."    More data:  2CS from 2003 to Aug 2009

Tom Drake's 2CS Sentiment Indicator 
From Tom's APRIL 26, 2011 blog post titled "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."
