Oil Stocks Start To Rally

by Greg Schnell

The Energy Sector spent the first six months of the year in the divorce section of most portfolios. Holding energy stocks was extremely painful while technology and biotech rallied. Most Commodities were pulling back for the first half and the associated stocks were as well. For those following the video recordings, we have been hunting for a seasonal low in energy stocks starting in early July. This looks like it is setting up. This week some of the energy stocks on both sides of the border are pushing above one-month bases. While its not much, it is somewhat rewarding to see it Read More

Some Low Level Signals Flicker In Energy

by Greg Schnell

Watching the energy stocks get pommeled on the back of low crude oil has been hard. We have seen some beaten down names starting to rally slightly over the last couple of weeks.  Here is the $BPENER, which broke above the 50 DMA today as you can see in the zoom box. Another chart that we have been following with the $BPENER is the momentum of the $BPENER's MACD. We have been tracking the momentum low for the $BPENER shown on the MACD. This cyclical low has happened every three years. The $BPENER data has been set to invisible so we can still Read More

Back in May, I posted this chart suggesting that if $COPPER could get going, the global mining stocks should also reflect that bullish enthusiasm. While $COPPER has been able to hold above its 40-Week Moving Average (40 WMA), none of the major miners are able to follow along. Almost every chart is making new lows for 2017. TECK, Freeport McMoran (FCX), and BHP look worse than VALE and RIO. RIO and VALE are at 6-month lows where the others are at Read More
