ONE EGG Scan for May 18th

Market ended the week higher, but still lacking that conviction that takes it higher. Consolidation remains, but the S&P 500 closed at new high. Plenty of work left to be done as we start the week looking for the upside follow through. Leadership would be nice… still none to speak of it we are going higher convincingly. Patience and risk management are a must currently.
