With the internals of the market looking so healthy, youmay be wondering what might derail the rally. Technimental’s Chief Market Strategist Kevin Lane noted a “nagging concern as the year wound down that speculative trading activity had crept into the market.”

Lane notes “Typically speculation rears its head just before good corrections. The hard part with speculation is it can run its course for a while before it gets over-exuberant. What this tells us is that although the trend is still up we need to pay closer attention to tape activity for signs that sentiment and speculation are leading investors to move out of the market.”
