  8. The 100 day, 200 day, and 250 day moving averages are starting to converge at $271 showing the nature of the past year’s lack of a trend going either way.
  9. A break above all key long term moving averages would signal the potential of a new uptrend. 
  10. A deal being reached with a China trade deal could trigger a rally. This is headline risk for bears.

These are bullish signals on the $SPY chart, that is why I am bullish here and have long positions, my stop losses will have to prove me wrong. The more trend signals I get the more bullish I will get.
