​​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 divergence is even more obvious on a weekly chart. And we broke
​on the July 20 week, the support trendline that started back since
​June 2012. ​​​​​​​​​​( See second chart below - Top Panel - Blue Trendline ).

​​​​The market reached on December 3 2015 a full risk Off status ​according
​​to ​the ​ETFs ​High/Low Beta Ratio ​when the 7 DMA (Day Moving Average) ​finally turned downward... 
​ ​​
( 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 May 2013 when we had that strong rebound. ​​​​( See chart below - Top Panel Amber Trend Line - Ellipses ).

​​​Also interesting to note​​ the Fear and Greed Index from CNN Money is coming from  Greed and as of January 6 is now at the Fear Level.

But the most interesting technical pattern here is that we continue to have a Lower Risk Pattern Behavior on a Weekly Chart as the Mighty SP500 Index are still above the August 2015 correction level; what a divergence! 
​( See second chart below - Top and Bottom Panel - Channels ).

​​High/Low Beta ETFs ratio on a short term basis broke the daily support trendline form a downward channel  ​​​​​that started since August 7 2018; capitulation phase it is indeed...
