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 first full week of August sees the equity markets are settling and marking time near their highs.

Elsewhere Gold looks to pause or pullback while Crude Oil pauses with a bias higher. The US Dollar Index is slowing in its descent while US Treasuries are broadly consolidating. The Shanghai Composite looks to continue in its uptrend while Emerging Markets pause in their uptrend.

Volatility looks to remain at very low levels keeping the bias higher for the equity index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ. Their charts show consolidation in the SPY and QQQ with a pullback in the the rising channel for the IWM. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trad’em well.
