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 2nd Quarter begins saw there was no sell off in equities, rather a gap and go week showing strength.

Elsewhere look for Gold to continue to consolidate while Crude Oil remains in an uptrend. The US Dollar Index looks to mark time next week while US Treasuries pullback in their uptrend. The Shanghai Composite and Emerging Markets are back in their uptrends.

Volatility is very low and looks to continue there, keeping the bias higher for the equity index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ. Their charts show the SPY and QQQ now looking like strong uptrends with the IWM turning up to join them. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trad’em well.
