​​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.​
( Ratio of SP500 High Beta stocks to Low Volatility Stocks )

​​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  chart below - Top Panel - Blue Trendline ).

​​​​The market reached since November 9 2015 a full risk Off status ​according
​​to ​the ​ETFs ​High/Low Beta Ratio. ​ ​​
( See chart below - Vertical Trendlines and Ellipses ).

The level of risk taking now according to that ratio is at the zone ​reached ​at the end of July 2012.
​ ​​​( See chart below - Top Panel Amber Trend Line - Ellipses ).

​​​Also interesting to note​​ the Fear and Greed Index from CNN Money as of February 8 is now at the Extreme 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 that support trendline that started since October 2014; what a divergence!  ​( See chart below - Top and Bottom Panel  ).

The most obvious High Beta sectors under tremendous pressure lately are the Internet and Bio Technology.
