In the past few weeks, there has been a hot market rally in equities.  This has sent the Dow Jones (DIA) and S&P 500 (SPY) to new heights. Eventually though, this rally must overheat. We may be in for a massive blow up.

Technical traders would tell you that this is an indication of overbought conditions. A correction is due.
