A decoupling of sorts has appeared in the market this past week. It's a bit reminiscent of the "Nifty 50" group back in the 1970's, but if today's version of those high-flyers really does have a serious correction, it will drag everything down with it, just like it did in 1973-74.

The S&P 500 Index ($SPX) broke out to new all-time highs again this past week, and now has closed at a new all-time high or traded at a new intraday all-time high on six of the last seven trading days.

Delta Neutral - How Good is it? (06:03)

At the Futures South Conference last month, there was a lot of talk about delta neutral strategies. We're going to take a look at what these strategies are, and why they're not as profitable and easy to operate as some advisors would have you believe. I have mentioned in the past that I have some trepidation that too many traders are embarking on delta neutral strategies without understanding that — like any other strategy — they involve work to operate profitably.

The swift rally that took place over the last week has left the indicators in a mixed state, with some of the longer-term indicators still in a bearish mode after the major overbought conditions that existed in late January. On the other hand, short-term indicators gave some oversold buy signals, and those have certainly carried the day this week.
