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 unofficial start of summer sees equity markets got kicked in the teeth again but continue to hang on.

Elsewhere look for Gold to consolidate in the downtrend while Crude Oil pulls back. The US Dollar Index is changing to a short term downtrend while US Treasuries continue to march higher. The Shanghai Composite and Emerging Markets look to continue to move lower.

Volatility looks to remain stable at moderate levels keeping the pressure off of for the equity index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ. This allow has allowed sentiment driven by headlines to play a bigger roll. In response the QQQ is looking the weakest with the SPY and IWM finding support at prior levels. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trad’em well.
