The above chart shows daily price action. The SPX500 is technically still in a downtrend. However, we note that the index is very close to ending the downtrend. If price moves above the green horizontal a higher peak will have been charted. The index is above the 200-day Simple Moving Average (SMA). If the 200-day SMA turns up, this will be considered as a bullish development.
