|Includes: QQQ, SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (SPY), XBI
Summary

The stock market started off 2019 as a dud but quickly changed sentiment after a strong economic report on Friday.

Price on SPY and QQQ are trading at the key SMA (20) level within the megaphone price channel.

XBI is possibly showing more upside for the markets as the SMA (20) was broken through to the upside on Friday with a strong candle close showing buyers in control.

In this blog, we take a look at the three broad market ETF's into the second full week of trading for 2019. The first week of 2019 gave profit opportunities to both bulls and bears with Friday being a massive move up from the December jobs report.

Written Analysis For The Broad Market into January 7th 

SPY, QQQ, and XBI are all showing a relatively similar setup here with the Vortex Indicator, MACD, and Willams %R all showing similar similar moves into next week. The SPY and QQQ look so similar, you would almost think they are the same security. The biotech ETF, XBI, is the leading security into next week with a clean break and close through the 20-day Simple Moving Average, which is the level SPY and QQQ are had trouble breaking through on Friday, January 4th. Within the price channels of all three exchange-traded funds, these setups have proven to provide more upside but have all reversed afterward to lower lows. The channel resistance above on all three securities will be a very important level to watch into the next week of trading.
