Economists looked at a statistical model that tracks "exuberance," or when prices increase at an exponential rate that can't be justified by economic fundamentals. When their exuberance measure reaches a 95% threshold, that signals 95% confidence that the market is experiencing "abnormal explosive behavior," they noted.
The current exuberance measure: 115%.
