It's not unusual for the pps to disappear -- to "ghost" -- when the price moves against the signal intraday, and that's what has happened to SPY.
The price has traversed 1.6% in a downward move today.
However, today's low (so far) is higher than yesterday's low, and today's high is higher than yesterday's high. The same pattern held true yesterday compared to the day before.
So, higher highs and higher lows -- I call it an uptrend that began on Tuesday. A renewed intraday rise on Friday would likely cause the pps bull signal to reappear.
