Bearish Divergences In The Tech Sector

Most of the Nasdaq’s breadth indicators have formed bearish divergences with the underlying index. What is curious is that this is the ‘second’ significant bearish divergence since the March 2020 lows. The prior divergence from June’20-September’20 led to a -12% correction but eventually the prices rebounded and Nasdaq made several new all time highs in 2021.
