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 calendar turns to March sees the equity markets continue to roar like a lion while market participants continue to look for reasons to sell.

Elsewhere look for Gold to continue its recent pullback while Crude Oil stalls in its uptrend. The US Dollar Index remains in broad consolidation while US Treasuries are trending lower in the short term. The Shanghai Composite and Emerging Markets remain in uptrends, but with Emerging Markets consolidating the move.

Volatility looks to remain very low keeping the bias higher for the equity index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ. Their charts all experienced consolidation this week at key levels on the short time frame, a healthy pause. On the longer timeframe possible reversal candles will look to next week to see if confirmation of long term uptrends is given or reversal confirmation at a lower high. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trad’em well.
