If you’re looking for trouble you might have found it. We will belabor the obvious by pointing out the negative aspects of this chart: Possible (maybe even probable) head and shoulders; Neckline penetration reacting to Greek tragedy; Penetration of mar09 trendline (!!).

It is a characteristic of prices at tops to do two things: drift sideways and break short term trendlines. Here a trendline from feb15 and a longer and more significant trendline from oct14 are broken.
Here we begin to see some shape to the market. And it is not pretty. Without too much contortion we can see a possible head and shoulders.
