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 Saturday which, with the full workforce returning from vacation the markets are looking very bullish. Gold looks to continue its uptrend while Crude Oil may consolidate with in the current uptrend. The US Dollar Index is wounded and heading lower and US Treasuries look to follow it lower as well. The Shanghai Composite is ready for a continued bounce in the downtrend and Emerging Markets are looking higher in the broad range. Volatility looks to remain very low making for an environment for the equity index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ, to continue higher. And all three charts on both the daily and weekly timeframes are set up to comply. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trade’m well.
