Is this the Combustion scenario unfolding here? The blowoff move? Sure seems like it. $SPX and $NDX closing at all time highs, a vertical move out of the gate today and people throwing all caution to the wind chasing stocks with 80+ RSI readings. Risk assets?

Keep watching that wedge. It reeks of blow-off.
