Crude Oil Rally Targets $64, Seasonality Bodes Well for Energy Equities

Crude Oil “daily” Chart

I wanted to share a few thoughts on WTI Crude Oil and where prices may be headed over the near-term.

Higher. But that is still very short-term as the rally has already taken WTI crude oil to $62.

WTI Crude Oil remains in a favorable uptrend. Momentum should carry Oil up toward $64 near-term.

On the equity side, price seasonality for core Energy ETFs OIH (NYSEARCA: OIH) and XLE (NYSEARCA: XLE) tends to be bullish April through June (source: Erlanger Research). This would be further supported should Oil remain firm/elevated around $60 during this time.

We suggest further analysis of these ETFs and components to find short-term ideas.
