SPY has been resting the last couple days and creating a flag pattern on daily. More upside to this move seems likely. FOMC rate decision is on the the 18th and news out of there can move the markets in the short term so that is something to keep in mind while trading this week. 

TSLA has been setting up to move higher as it has been holding higher in flag pattern. GMCR, AMBA and others are setting up with charts below.

​Markets gave a well deserved pullback the last two days after the huge run up from the no taper comments from Bernanke. First level to watch on SPY is the 10 MA, this is the first area to hold.

Its better to pay attention to individual charts with good setups then to pay to much attention to the overall markets.

​We are near the 50 day moving average on SPY which is an area of support and the volume has been low pulling back to these levels. Lets see if we hold around the 50 day and move higher. The IWM and QQQ have been holding up well which is a good sign that the market is still healthy. Leaders are still very strong such as TSLA, FB, CELG, and BIDU which is another clue that we are not broken.

Below are a few charts that are setting up.

With all the news out of the way we can now look forward to focusing on upcoming earnings. Google made a monster move on the release of its earnings and is now trading above an impressive $1000 per share. The markets are a bit stretched at new all time highs. If we can get a few days of rest in this upper area it would provide better charts for us to trade. Below are long setups that could go but keep in mind where the market have come from. Also, check the earnings date for any stock you plan to get into.
