Contributed Opinion

Jack Chan Technical analyst Jack Chan reports the energy sector cycle is down and a multiweek correction is in progress, and discusses what that means.

Our proprietary energy cycle indicator turned down last week from the divergence as noted previously.

OSX Oil Services Index

We have a serious divergence this week between oil and oil stocks. Such divergences have almost always led to a substantial decline in prices in oil-related ETFs.

DUG ProShares UltraShort Oil & Gas

It so happens that we have a new buy signal and set up on the inverse ETF this week.

Summary
The energy sector cycle is down and a multiweek correction is in progress. Traders can consider shorting the sector via an inverse ETF, and manage their risk by using stops.
