A Long Way Down
The breakdown in Chevron (CVX) could spell real trouble.
The Oil & Gas Sector has already been covered extensively over the entire month of January.
Prior posts are here, here, here, here, here and here.
Some of the analysis was negated by subsequent price action and some of it not. This is the way of the markets.
However, the main theme was, this sector’s at an extreme, at risk for a major, swift and sustained downturn (not advice, not a recommendation).
Additional data that indicated extremes, including the Chevron (CVX) buy-back are below:
WTI ‘Cushing‘ Build Report
Investors ‘surge‘ back into oil.
Events like this, tend to indicate the end of a move.
Then today, Chevron (CVX) cracks.
In keeping with Elder’s method of trading options, as was done with the Delta Airlines (DAL) trade, the chart is documented below.
Note: The Delta Put expired with no revenue on the trade. This is how the method is implemented. Many small losses that are peppered by a significant gain (not advice, not a recommendation).
Chevron CVX, Daily
Over the next week, CVX could get ahold if itself and stabilize … or it could completely fall apart (not advice, not a recommendation).
We can already see, it appears to have posted a double top with a swift reversal.
Probabilities favor the downside.
