Bars Since Bull < bars Since Bear

I have 8 conditions, 4 bullish, 4 bearish.
I want the bullish signal to start when all 4 bullish conditions are true, and to continue to show a bullish signal until all 4 bearish conditions are true

How would I go about and code this?
Any ideas?

Thanks

Henry

here is what I have so far

Code:
declare Lower;

def R1 = RSI(8);

def R2 = RSI(14);

def R3 = RSI(19);

def ma =Close/ SimpleMovingAvg(close,9);

def Bull = R1 > R2 and R2 > R3 and ma > 1;

def Bear = R3 > R2 and R2 > R1 and ma < 1;

def state = {default init, Bull, Bear};



def Signal;
switch (state[1]) {
case init:
   if (!IsNaN(loss)) {
     switch (firstTrade) {
      case Bull:
           state = state.Bull;
          
     case Bear:
   state = state.Bear;
  }
} else {
   state = state.init;

  }
case Bull:
   if (Bull == 1) {
      state = state.Bull;
    } else {
     state = state.Bear;
    }
case Bear:
   if (Bear ==1) {
      state = state.Bear;
      
} else {
       state = state.Bull;
   }
}
def BuySignal = Crosses(state == state.Bull, 0, CrossingDirection.ABOVE);
def SellSignal = Crosses(state == state.Bear, 0, CrossingDirection.ABOVE);

what I'm looking for is once the Bull signal fires , I want a +1 to remain true until the Bear signal fires then the bear remains true until the bull fires again
