The charts of US Major Indices are showing the narrative that their respective Price Action Trend Cycle are maturing at the same time.
Both the S&P 500 & Nasdaq-100 are currently trading at the upper band of the Bollinger with the S&P 500 trading at 15% premium to its 200-MA while Nasdaq-100 is trading at 20% premium to its 200-MA.

We at the stage of the financial market where the market’s most aggressive energy has gone racing toward “pre-profit” growth companies, long-shot emerging growth and massive SPACs listing and acquisition spree.
Stock like Gamestop or a Plug has been dramatically surging within a one-month period with momentum investors chasing on them.
Such a euphoria bears a resemblance to that of the 90’s dotcom bubble where this sort of thing kept rolling until the Nasdaq doubled in less than a year and a few-hundred IPOs hit the market before an inevitable correction.
Nobody knows when the market is going into a meltdown. However, the ingredients of a significant correction are in place.
The charting model used has been spot on many occasions and there is reason to believe that a correction is impending.
