Cadence Design Systems, Ticker: $CDNS

Cadence Design Systems, $CDNS, jumped in February 2017 and then trended higher for the rest of the year, making a top at the end of November.

After a weak bounce it dropped again, this time through the 200 day SMA, finding support at the end of October. Since then it rose and met resistance at the 100 day SMA.

After reviewing over 1,000 charts, I have found some good setups for the week. These were selected and should be viewed in the context of the broad Market Macro picture reviewed Friday which with January Options Expiration behind, sees the Equity markets looking extremely strong and perhaps overheated.

Elsewhere look for Gold to pause in its uptrend while Crude Oil slows as it hits resistance as well. The US Dollar Index looks destined to move lower while US Treasuries are biased lower in consolidation. The Shanghai Composite and Emerging Markets are poised to continue to new multi-year highs.

Volatility looks to remain at very low levels keeping the bias higher for the equity index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ. They are lining up on both the shorter and longer timeframe now with the SPY overheated and at extreme momentum levels, the QQQ also overbought but not quite extreme, while the IWM is just getting going. This could easily lead to rotation into the IWM from the other Indexes. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trad’em well.
