Wednesday prince action gapped up at the open, while Thursday and Friday opened with a gap down. These levels are resistance overhead. The most recent gap on Friday is overhead from 286 ~ 290 (+/-). If it holds that is showing the bears have a stronger hand. Trade accordingly by selling some into strength if resistance holds.

O&G Stocks Show Strength

Oil and Gas (O&G) stocks rallied yesterday. Look for this wave up to continue into midweek if the indices can push through the Friday gap. In addition, the energy sector rose as a result. Both need to show strength in order to add to our swing positions.
