The next window up is the (ROC) of the VVIX. When the ROC of the VVIX is near -10, the SPX can be near a short-term high (currently at +9.72). The market has least stalled in the rally phase.

The top window is the SPX McClellan Oscillator. This chart goes back to mid-2018 and shows the times when the SPX McClellan Oscillator traded above +100, identified with red vertical lines. On July 29 of this year, the SPX McClellan Oscillator closed at +100.57. The SPX Oscillator hit +100 eight times (not counting this time) going back to mid-2018, and all but one had either a short-term pullback or at least traded sideways for at least a couple of weeks.

Above is one of the indicators that is giving an intermediate-term signal. The bottom window is the 50-day average for the Up down Volume percent, and the next window up is the 50-day average of the Advance/Decline percent.
