ALJ implied approval?

I had my appeal hearing last week and the ALJ grilled the VE and tossed any suggestions he made for SGAs, requiring no cross-examination by my atty.
Afterward, my atty stated the ALJ implied he would approve my appeal but, we need to wait a month or so for the decision letter and he didn't indicate a full/partial approval. The ALJ has a 70-74% approval history over the past 8-9 years.
Any thoughts on an "implied approval"?

Hi there,
It looks like you have a pretty decent case! However, you may want to wait for the ALJ's decision letter.
