SSI – at -2.7, the vast majority of retail traders are trying to pick a top. Additionally, short open interest has increased 9.5% in the past week. SSI suggests a continued move higher. (Bullish)
OBV – several time frames (15 min, 30min, 3hr, 4hr, 6hr) are showing a divergence between this burst higher in price over the past 24 hours versus the on-balance volume. This suggests a lack of conviction through volume in the move higher. (Bearish)
