General Motors - GM -- here is one engine design detail briefly described for the
dual volute twin turbo engine Cadillac now has available at least in the 2022
model year, and I personally know it applies as an available
order option for the 2.7 liter CT4 and CT5 sedan --
this is an excerpt from the Road&Track article
I am reading now explaining the dual volute:

" What are the advantages? As Road & Track contributor Jason Fenske explains in his
latest video above, a dual volute setup means the turbo can keep exhaust pulses
separated before they reach the compressor wheel, minimizing any positive pressure
going back into the engine.

And since the volutes are designed to dump exhaust gases on opposite sides of the turbine,
those pulses don't ever overlap. This design also means the turbine housing can be closer
to the turbine itself, improving efficiency and response."

I drove a new 2022 today with only 4 miles on it, and drove 18 miles mostly on some moderately smooth
rural paved roads allowing me to travel 50 or 55 ....

braking, acceleration, quiet engine unless I very briefly punched it with a system
that has not yet self-tuned by being driven a # of miles....

punch the accelerator with full force and muscle car roar is both felt and heard.

Not sure that applies to the normal Cadillac buyer mindset .... the sound was better than
a fully maxed out Dodge Challenger or Charger, which a lot of my muscle car buds like
directly from the factory and they turn up their nose about the Camaro lack of noise on the big
V-8, not the racing engine upgrade

I tell you the relatively short wheelbase on the 4-door CT4, the window layout on two sides & rear,
and viewing using the side mirrors blew me away
for safety awareness in perhaps milliseconds of timing improvement for the driver's dynamic assessment
of ongoing vehicle & highway surroundings...

the sonar placed in the rear of the vehicle accomplishes some driver awareness
and automatic operation decisions by the car itself which impressed me as providing potential value-added

I averaged 25.2 mpg driving the car from its 4 mileage odometer reading to 22 reading at the end of the drive

2 pounds greater psi is called for on door panel for rear tires vs. front tires... tires are "run flats" and there

is no spare

high levels of agility is my best summary of the experience in this car, which may or may not add to avoidance of close calls from nearby inattentive drivers.... the steering communication with the road is incredible and provides driver with what I consider 10 level scoring for confidence that the integration of
the suspension with all the steering responsiveness is a highly reliable & accurate experience for any driver who has become attuned to finer responsive engineering & manufacture of these vehicle systems...the driver positioning vs. the road surface is about 95% comparable to driver vs. road surface experience when
driving the higher end Corvette choice that has been available is some form or another for a # of years...

General Motors - GM - 2020 model year technical review of the largest most powerful
4-cylinder ICE engine available in the market says the presenter --- the L3B 2.7 liter 4-cylinder
twin turbo engine ( dual volute twin turbo )

" a very cool turbo charger, with two volutes, one on top of the other "

I did in fact pull the trigger on Tuesday with an actual delivery to me that day
of the new 2022 Cadillac CT-4 sedan with the model
year 2022 version of this engine, and about 12k of adds in addition to the add for

the 2.7 liter option available in the CT-4 ...

net reductions on the bill of sale to me for purchase
was $500 factory rebate which incentive expires May 2,
$1500 Costco auto buying program price decrease,
3-year 0% financing with GM

* I am told most Cadillac dealers are requiring buyers to pay more than MSRP, though I have
checked 4 dealers in various locations in ID, UT and MT ... found now current inventory on their
lots of this specific 2.7 liter AWD 2022 CT-4

metallic garnet exterior color with an additional " infrared tint" for which Cadillac MSRP was approx +1,100

interior perforated color of the leather is a medium light orange / tan shade ...seats have both heat and cooling functions within both front seats

AWD option was included as a $add in this purchased vehicle ... now have driven it approx. 40 miles ...

without exception, the electronic display touch screen and all the button controls
on the dash and steering wheel are user friendly and requires only a few minutes

to self teach their location and use
seats are max adjustable and comfort is a score of 10, for my limited experience to date

this is both a smooth quiet agile ride with high yet firm sensitivity for the driver AND it is a muscle car

performance in terms of both power, turning and sound

all the display functions are visible with no steering wheel impact blocking visibility of anything ...
the Heads up Display showing speed, etc can be adjusted & placed to the lowest boundary of the windshield so speed can be in the lower side of line of sight when driver is facing front while
at the same time remaining below the precise plane in which driver monitors traffic ahead

this early morning's institutional Sentiment email which arrived from
was an especially instructive tool for today's action ... more than usual

write Mark Young at and tell him "hiker" in Idaho sent you &
ask Mark if he would please consider granting you a trial period for this ongoing email service

Mark has been thorough with this service for many, many years ... and is getting better at it, imo

we had a telecon today while I was having tires rotated on a Subaru, and discussed the Thursday
update for the weekly NAAIM net long minus short exposure which saw a large percentage
net drop today

Mark knows his data sets


Wall Street Sentiment was named Timer Digest's Timer of the Year for 2017! We were also ranked #2 for 2017 Long Term Timer in Timer Digest. See see it HERE.

See our featured issue of Timer Digest Here. Learn a bit more about us.


The simple fact is that investor sentiment is one of the most powerful forces in the stock market. It can make the difference between selling out at a market low and buying there. Literally, it can make the difference between big losses and huge profits.

Have you ever wondered why some traders routinely buy right near the market's lows, when most sane people wouldn't even consider buying?

The reason why they are able to make such masterful market moves is that they understand investor/trader sentiment. Isn't it time YOU joined the ranks of masterful traders?

WE can help you get there.

The stock market is an emotional place to be, and without the proper tools, anyone can fall victim to the stressful emotions that make 90% of all traders lose money at precisely the worst time possible.

The secret to profitable trading is not a secret.

The market is driven by two things: Fear and Greed. Too much fear, and stocks get mis-priced on the down side. Too much greed and they get mis-priced to the upside. The key to knowing how much is "too much" lies in the careful study of Market Sentiment. Trading and investing is inherently emotional, and when a trader's emotions overrule his logic, that trader is setting himself up for a loss. The trader that knows when others' emotions are overruling their logic is setting himself up for gains.

We track those emotions.

Market Sentiment is not a secret. People have been talking about "Fear and Greed" for generations. Few, however, understand how to use sentiment to consistently improve returns and reduce risk. This is where we come in. We are your experts. We track the shifting nature of our financial markets and their participants and devise new ways of tracking their emotions and analyzing their impact.

Experienced traders already know what they need to do, they're just afraid of doing it, and it's a very expensive mistake to make. We can give you the confidence to pull the trigger when others are afraid to and the wisdom to distance yourself from the herd--where the big profits are made.

Professional investors know that real money has always been made by getting with a market trend and staying with the trend. Those who profit from the markets know this simple rule and have seen it work. Market Sentiment can help traders determine a trend's staying power, the strength or weakness of the trend, or when the trend's strength is questionable or even ending.

We have the solution.

The Wall Street Sentiment Weekly Report and the Wall Street Sentiment Daily are your personal guides to following this key Market Sentiment. By using time tested indicators and our unique proprietary sentiment polling, we have predicted 4 out of the last 5 market tops, and all of the recent bottoms.

How do we do it?

We can tell you this, we can't do it alone. In addition to myriad public sentiment measures, and some of our making, each week, we depend on three carefully conducted surveys of three specially selected (and static) pools of participants -- each with their own particular expertise in the markets and experience levels. It's the equivalent to the perfect market diversification, only in terms of backgrounds, interests, and approaches.

Don't be one of those traders!

We survey each survey participant at the end of each week and tally the results according to a proprietary algorithm, resulting in three separate conclusions. These three distinct conclusions, when set against each other, have been able to accurately predict the upcoming week's market action. And this is no fluke, we've been doing this for 25 years.

The Wall Street Sentiment Daily takes a leap ahead and brings you not only the Weekend Report, but also brings you the daily sentiment you need to trade with. The Wall Street Sentiment Daily brings you analysis of the dollar-weighted options buying, as well as other great real-money measures of speculative sentiment.

We also measure Traders-talk message board sentiment, which, unlike many other sentiment measures, has a great track record of accurately spotting tops (as well as determining when a top is nearly impossible). This is all in addition to analysis of nominal put call ratios, as well as the numerous other polls and surveys. But there's more...

If you need daily hands-on information and instructions on how to successfully trade on Sentiment everyday, as well as the Daily Rydex Speculation Oscillator insight to the real market movers, you'll want to look at the Wall Street Sentiment Daily Trade Navigator.
If you need intraday real time specific trading entry and stops using Sentiment, you need the Wall Street Sentiment Premium Service.

You can join the thousands of investors, traders, and professional managers who have learned from the WSS reports, been stunned at the accuracy, and most importantly, made money from the Wall Street Sentiment Services.

For over ten years Wall Street Sentiment services have been called "The most useful and profitable sentiment on Wall Street."

The Barron's Big Money Poll (112 money managers)
found that only 12% of their clients were bullish on U.S. stocks.

One of the worst starts ever for a 60/40 portfolio will do it for a potential Sentiment extreme event,
but you just have to wonder how much bad news is priced in right here.
