​​The Situation

​​​The market participants never gave attention to that divergence that
​started from March 8 2016 til March 18 between Risk Taking
​behavior (weakening) and ​the ​Mighty ​SP500 Index that was still
into a Grinding Pattern​ ​​​​​​​​(See chart below - Bottom Panel - Ellipse).

​​The divergence is even more obvious on a weekly chart. And we almost
​reached ​on the March 7 week, the resistance trendline of a downtrend channel
​that started back since ​May 2015. ​​​​​​​​​​(See second chart below - Top Panel - Downtrend channel).

​​​​The market reached on March 24 2016 a full risk fading status ​according
​​to ​the ​ETFs ​High/Low Beta Ratio ​when the 7 DMA (Day Moving Average) ​finally turned downward... 
​ ​​
(See chart below - Top Panel - Blue Line).

The level of risk taking now according to that ratio is back at the zone ​reached ​at the beginning of April 2013.
​ ​​​​(See chart below - Top Panel Amber Trend Line - Ellipses).

​​​Also interesting to note​​ the Fear and Greed Index from CNN Money is coming from Extreme Fear and as of April 4 is now at the Greed Level.

But the most interesting technical pattern here is that we continue to have a Lower Risk Pattern Behavior on a Weekly Chart as we are still into that downtrend channel.
​(See second chart below - Top Panel - Channel).

​​High/Low Beta ETFs ratio on a short term basis tested the daily resistance trendline form a downward channel  ​​​​​that started since August 20 2015 and fading. ​ (See chart below - Top Panel - Channel). Risk behavior is weakening indeed as the Mighty SP500 Index is near the resistance trendline that started back since May 2015...
(See chart below - Bottom Panel - Grey Trendline -Ellipse).
