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 with August options expiration over and back to school on its way sees the equity markets continuing to look strong on the longer timeframes.

Elsewhere look for Gold to continue lower while Crude Oil joins it heading to the downside. The US Dollar Index may pause in its uptrend while US Treasuries drift higher in broad consolidation. The Shanghai Composite and Emerging Markets are looking really weak as they print multi-year lows and continue lower.

Volatility looks to remain subdued keeping the bias higher for the equity index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ. Their charts are a bit mixed in the shorter timeframe with the QQQ pulling back, the IWM flat and the SPY running higher. But all three remain in solid uptrends on the longer basis. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trad’em well.
