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 July options expiration week sees there has been a shift in short term leadership in the equity markets back to the QQQ from the IWM with the SPY continuing to improve.

Elsewhere look for Gold to continue lower while Crude Oil consolidates in its uptrend. The US Dollar Index continues to pause in its uptrend while US Treasuries continue to move higher. The Shanghai Composite may be building a bottom after a long drop and Emerging Markets are showing signs of a possible reversal to the upside after their long drop.

Volatility looks to be back at extreme low levels and holding keeping the bias higher for the equity index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ. Their charts all look strong on the longer timeframe with the QQQ leading the charge. On the shorter timeframe signs of a pause are showing in the IWM while the SPY and QQQ are continuing higher. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trad’em well.
