Teekay Tankers (TNK) Floats Higher In A Sea Of Red

 | 

Teekay Tankers (TNK) is a shipper of Crude Oil. With crude oil plummeting, why would shippers be busy? Well, holding spot price crude on a ship till the price improves can be a hedge fund's game. It looks to me that this might be what's going on.

Well, the chart on Teekay couldn't look any more than a tanker. Most of it is submerged below resistance, but now it has a mast rising above the surface. On Friday's global plunge, Teekay was up like a rocket with the rest of the crude shippers. In a sea of red the crude shippers were floating upstream. Notice the SCTR broke above 75 at the end of October.

If you click on the full quote panel, it will tell you what group it is in. In this case, Oil Equipment and Services.

Good trading,
