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, heading into Memorial Day Weekend, and the official start of ‘work 4 days and then head to the Hamptons’ the equity markets have recovered a bit but not turned around fully. Look for Gold to continue its consolidation while Crude Oil remains biased higher. The US Dollar Index and US Treasuries also look higher with Treasuries perhaps ready for another short term pullback. The Shanghai Composite looks to consolidate over 2000 and Emerging Markets are biased to the upside. Volatility looks to subdued keeping the bias higher for the equity index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ. Their individual charts tell a different story with all in consolidation including the SPY, but the QQQ’s biased higher while the IWM is biased lower. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trad’em well.
