Oil Sector Tests Reversal

Deep Test For XOP

XOP is either in a deep test at the Fibonacci 76.4%, retrace level (distance between black lines), or it’s getting ready to post new recovery highs.

Volume was moderate with no overt indication either way.

A higher open at the next session would most likely indicate trouble for a short position (not advice, not a recommendation).

However, one has to realize we’re at extremes in price and most likely sentiment as well.

Looking at the weekly gives a better perspective:

Positioning:

We’re keeping the finger close to the sell button (for inverse DUG) but are not convinced the short set-up has been invalidated (not advice, not a recommendation).

Price action’s at a confluence of trend lines and resistance. Some type of trend confusion is to be expected.
