The overall conclusion being that this is a "healthy correction" or in other words a reset of extreme bullish sentiment and rising leverage. Meanwhile, as this chart confirms, the macro backdrop is still solid. Until indicators like this start to turn the risk of a bear market remains low in the immediate term.
