Short Term Trade Analysis
RSI- the SPY is over the '50' mark and appears to be moving with the stock as it continues to attempt to inch its way up. Looks like it is climbing higher on short term strength and this is a good thing for a bullish market.
Bollinger Bands- we are through the middle band and slowly inching higher. As the RSI shows strengthening of the move, we want to see the SPY stay above the middle band. This will be important to a continued move up.
MACD- we have the short term MA crossover we were waiting for. And we are above the '0' mark on the MACD Histogram. Can we continue up. Everything looks mildly bullish for a start.
