Both the S&P index and Dow industrial average are now trading positive. The NASDAQ index has erased most of its declines as well and trades near highs for the day.

For the S&P index it is trading right near its 200 day moving average at 4491.73. Yesterday the price of the index closed below that moving average for the first time since March 23. If the price can get back above, that would tilt the bias to the upside.
