y chart below shows sentiment is up significantly from where I wrote on Feb. 11, 2016 "With SPY Down 14% Again, Sentiment Charts Suggest Another Tradable Low" but remains well below the "Euphoria" Region.

My April 3, 2016 article "Citigroup's Panic/Euphoria Model" shows Panic/Euphoria back to 1987.
From Citigroup Investment Research: "The panic/euphoria model is a gauge of investor sentiment.  It identifies "Panic" and "Euphoria" levels which are statistically driven buy and sell signals for the broader market.  Historically, a reading below panic supports a better than 95% likelihood that stock prices will be higher one year later, while euphoria levels generate a better than 70% probability of stock prices being lower one year later."
