Sector ETF Trade Ideas

Here are a few of my top picks for sector ETFs right now that appear to offer some of the best risk-to-reward profiles at this time. Holding exchange traded products (ETFs & ETNs) vs. individual stocks during earnings season helps to mitigate the risk of being caught on the wrong side of a large earnings-induced gap against your position (e.g.- INTC has traded up over 10% today following their earnings report last night while SOXX has only traded up less than 2½% so far today). SOXX - semiconductors ETF short (or SOXS long). This backtest of the recent broken 60-min uptrend [...]

The Case for A Major Correction In Crude Oil

Technical evidence for a major trend reversal and correction in crude oil continues to build. The first chart below is the same chart (many annotations & technical developments later) that was posted here back on January 19, 2016, making the case that "a significant rally or trend reversal was close at hand" just 3 weeks before crude bottomed & embarked on the bull market that has so far seen $WTI rise by approximately 150%. Positive & negative divergences, rising & falling wedges, trendlines, breaks above/below resistance/support levels, overbought & oversold readings, etc.. all help to determine where prices might [...]

Crude Oil Testing Support

Crude futures have broken down & backtested the secondary uptrend line, currently making the second test of the 63.15 support level. A solid break and/or 60-min close below will likely bring /CL down to the 62.20 level. Should my call for a correction in crude continue to play out, that should translate into more downside in the oil & gas stocks & related ETFs such as XLE, XOP & XES. 60-minute chart of /CL (crude futures) below.

Energy Stocks Sell Signal Triggered

Two of the three (XES & XOP) of the major oil & gas ETFs that I closely monitor have triggered sell signals on the 60-minute time frame with XLE poised to follow suit. My expectation for a pullback in the energy stocks meshes with my expectation for a correction in crude oil prices & the EIA Petroleum Status Report, scheduled to be released at 11:00am ET, could be the catalyst for a move down to the price targets that I've recently highlighted on the 60-minute chart of /CL (crude futures) below. The other three charts are the 60-minute charts of XLE [...]
