From Hedge Fund Tips: AAII Sentiment Survey results are out this morning. Bullishness is now up OVER the 40 level – which usually marks market reversals. Bearishness has collapsed. In the S&P500 chart below I have noted those dates in the recent past where Sentiment was at similar levels (Bullishness ~40, Bearishness <30).

Well on SPX I have been watching three levels which are all currently in the same area. These are the SPX weekly pivot at 2784, the 50 hour MA now at 2787 and the 5dma now at 2790.
