Here are the Rest of the Top 10:
Abbott Laboratories, Ticker: $ABT
Abbott Laboratories, $ABT, had a strong run higher from mid April so you may think it is due for a pullback. And it might do so. But the recent consolidation in a bull flag suggests another leg higher may be in the picture……

Comerica, $CMA, made a high in March before pulling back to near the 200 day SMA in May. the bounce higher consolidated for a month before falling back to the cross of the 50 and 100 day SMA’s last week and then bouncing higher again.

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 the last days of July, sees the Equity Indexes again are mixed. Elsewhere look for Gold to continue lower in its consolidation while Crude Oil slowly climbs in its broad consolidation. The US Dollar Index is breaking higher and looks to continue in the short run while US Treasuries continue to look good to the upside. The Shanghai Composite and Emerging Markets are also biased to the upside now with the risk that Emerging Markets find resistance. Volatility looks to remain at low levels keeping the bias higher for the equity index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ. There chart paint a mixed picture though with the QQQ looking strong and ready to continue higher while the SPY consolidated in the uptrend and the IWM pulls back in the consolidation range. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trad’em well.
