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 last week of the 3rd quarter, sees equity strength has rotated from the small cap and tech names into the large caps of the Dow Jones Industrials and the S&P 500. The leaders are making new all-time highs as the laggards hold steady, a strong market.

Elsewhere look for Gold to consolidate in its downtrend while Crude Oil slowly moves higher. The US Dollar Index looks to continue to the downside slowly while US Treasuries are at the bottom of consolidation and look better lower. The Shanghai Composite is bouncing off a retest of the lows but not safe yet and Emerging Markets are bouncing in their downtrend as well.

Volatility looks to remain very low keeping the bias higher for the equity index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ. The SPY is now leading the way on the shorter timeframe with the QQQ and IWM consolidating, while all look fantastic on the longer timeframe. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trad’em well.
