In this article the authors discuss the assessment of market returns through the percentage of cash assets in equity mutual funds in the U.S. They state that the bidding up of prices through the influx of new money will allow for equity markets to move higher. The authors note that high cash levels will be a bullish signal if money is pulled out of the market at a bottom.
