I wrote two pieces about energy stocks and crude oil prices back on August 29th (click here) and on September 14th (click here). The call on crude oil and energy stocks were pretty good if I do say so myself. Both crude and energy stocks are at areas where I think they have found obvious levels of resistance.
Crude Oil Futures Contract – Daily Chart
Crude has made a beautiful 3-wave price structure out of a downward broadening price pattern. My software is painting dark blue extreme trend strength warning candles with pink divergence dots right as price has pushed into the 1.272x – 1.618x extension target zone for Wave 3. As good a spot for crude to begin a corrective pull-back price structure as any.
S&P Energy Index ETF (XLE) – Daily Chart
As I suggested back in late August, energy stocks made it all the way up into the median line of the upward sloping weekly broadening price pattern. Crude and energy stocks are going to crush a lot of dreams here over the next couple of weeks I would think.
