This happens to be one of the most reliable buy signs in technical analysis.

The market is already at the highest level it has been in since October 10, 2018. The relative strength index (RSI) curve is creeping along the overbought zone and the Elliot Wave Oscillator shows that the last bullish session was strong enough to reverse the histogram from bearish to bullish.
