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 as the market moved through March Options Expiration saw the equity markets had shifted gears into consolidation, with the exception of the QQQ.
Elsewhere look for Gold to continue to pullback in its uptrend while Crude Oil moves higher. The US Dollar Index looks to move lower in broad consolidation while US Treasuries stall under resistance. The Shanghai Composite and Emerging Markets are back in consolidation mode, moving sideways.
Volatility looks to sit at very low levels, giving support to equities to continue higher. Their charts show the SPY and IWM taking a pause in the shorter timeframe while the QQQ continues to blast higher. On the longer timeframe all 3 have recovered from their 1 week pullback and continue to show strong uptrends. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trad’em well.
