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, sees Monday closing the 2nd Quarter and then we head into July with the equity market still looking strong. Elsewhere look for Gold to continue in its uptrend while Crude Oil may continue to consolidate in its uptrend. The US Dollar Index is in another short term downtrend while US Treasuries are biased higher, but may need a very short pullback first. The Shanghai Composite continues to grind sideways with Emerging Markets pulling back or consolidating in their uptrend. Volatility looks to remain minuscule keeping the bias higher for the equity index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ. Their charts show that the SPY and IWM gained some strength to end the week but are still in a range while the QQQ is rising and very strong. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trad’em well.
