Makes all the difference. I used to trade live cattle back in the day. They used to say, "the live is the drive - just don't drive too fast". The market may be getting us used to the concept of phase change in inflation. The only way the stock market deals with this in a holistic fashion is upward trend levels that are less steep. Trading Nominal price is one thing. Earning real return as a money manager is a whole different manner.
Noticed that too. Since Nov 2013, abenomics, angles changed, market changed, dips less dependent on fundamentals, more on monitary manipulation moves, VIX down so low. I think this theory extends to chart patterns too, just less severe everything. :)
