Tuesday Brainstorming

1. Sentiment is reaching the top levels as you can see below but more importantly is rather the action sentiment which are the ISEE MA's of Call/Put ratio's who are very close to a severe correction level now as well. We need another week of VIX weakness hence a new weekly weaker close to trigger a wave down which will exceed 10% correction calls. Only be aware that the mid Feb. time frame will have a temp positive effect especially on America ( Astro pattern) - that might mark wave 2 up in the ongoing bear campaign.
