Gasoline Stalls after Breakout


Spot Unleaded Gasoline ($GASO) found support in the 2.45-2.50 area from September to December and then broke resistance with a surge the last three weeks.

Believe it or note, this breakout is positive for stocks because $GASO and the S&P 500 are positively correlated.
