Fifth Third Bancorp, Ticker: $FITB
Fifth Third Bancorp, $FITB, is building a bull flag between 14.85 and 15.15, after a rise since November.

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, as the last day of 2012 approaches sees Gold continuing to look lower while Crude Oil shows an upside trend continuing. The US Dollar Index and US Treasuries seem content to move sideways with US Treasuries now biased higher and the Dollar Index lower. The Shanghai Composite and Emerging Markets are both biased to the upside with risk of Emerging Markets consolidating further first. Volatility has jumped and is looking to relatively higher than recently switching the bias for the equity index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ, lower, with the QQQ looking the worst and IWM the strongest. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trade’m well.
