We Cannot Predict But We Can Prepare
Contributed Opinion


Jack Chan Technical analyst Jack Chan says the charts suggest that the major correction in the oil service sector since 2014 is now complete.

Our proprietary energy cycle is now at levels of previous tops, with a divergence in place.

A divergence occurs when the BP is at lower high while energy stocks are at a higher high.

Our long-term model remains at a major sell signal since 2014, but can soon change if prices remain firm.

From the Elliott wave perspective, there is a clear five wave up and waves in fives are impulsive, suggesting that the major correction since 2014 is now complete. A corrective pullback/consolidation should not break below top of wave1.

We cannot predict but we can prepare.
If prices remain above the top of wave1 at the next cycle bottom, investors can consider accumulating for the long term.
