S&P 500 futures is holding up nicely at 50 weeks MA but slightly below 10 weeks moving average (MA). The suggestion is still remain the same as last week call. Options trader can continue to hold the position while stock trader should wait patiently for either side of the symmetrical triangle to break before entering the market. Stock trader should continue to stay in the sideline while waiting for a more obvious trend to be formed.
Crude oil futures ended at $69.79 with volume slightly higher than the previous week. Do ride the bullish momentum and sit tight with the stop loss. Do refer my suggestion here.
Gold futures ended at $1316. It is holding well at 50 Weeks EMA and the chances of challenging resistance at $1366 is high. I am still bullish on Gold unless it breaks below 200 weekly MA and the lower trending up line (orange line in the screenshot)
Suggestion: While there are multiple ways to trade this setup, I am still prone to wait for the gold price to break $1366 before setting up a bullish trade.

The stock built up a nice base without much volume spike during the down days indicated that the institution investors are still holding the stocks well. A nice bullish reversal pattern was formed on 25 Apr after the stock hit the 50 days MA with volume spike.
