What a rally! A sucker rally? - 28 Nov 2011

The US market just opened 30 mins ago, and I just settled down enough to look at the charts... with a stunning 40 points upshot on the ES (S&P500 futures).

This is an awesome headline rally that followed a huge gap up, that might be a good runner for the next week or so, but the intraday bearish divergence is just so obvious. The ES is now up 40 points, 3.5%, and the charts below are snapshots from my iPad.

Notice that the USD futures, DX also has a bullish divergence... and another interesting point is that Crude (CL) futures had a similar bearish divergence and the rally was not sustained even as the ES continued to rally more.

While the news at the opening of the week is really awesome, I am left to wonder if this is a sucker rally of sorts... I'd be watching that ascending wedge as well as for a reversal swing point.
