​​The Situation

​​The market participants never gave attention to that divergence that
​started from May 8 2015 between Risk Taking behavior (weakening) and
​the ​Mighty ​SP500 Index that was holding in a rising wedge pattern til it
​broke finally on the downside on August 20.​
​​​​​​​( See chart below - Bottom Panel - Red Trendline ).

​​The market reached on August 26 2015 a full risk off status according
​to ​the ​ETFs ​High/Low Beta Ratio ​when the 7 DMA (Day Moving Average)
​finally turned up back then... 
( See chart below - Vertical Trendlines and Ellipses ).

The level of risk taking now according to that ratio is at the zone
​reached ​at the beginning of August  2013 and rebounding in a dead cat
​bounce type of pattern. ​​​​( See chart below - Top Panel Amber Trend Line - Ellipses ).

​​​Also interesting to note​​ the Fear and Greed Index from CNN Money is bottoming out​ but as of August 28 is still at the Extreme Fear Level.

​​​​​The SP500 Index (SPX) broke on August 20 a Rising Wedge Pattern. that started since December 16 2014.
​​​​ ( See chart below - Bottom Panel - Red Trendline ).

But the most interesting technical pattern here is that we got back above the Support Trendline​​ that started back on February 5 2015. The battle ground for the SP500 Index is now between that Support Trendline and the old Trendline form the Broken Rising Wedge that becomes resistance.
