Energy Sector Gathers Tailwinds, Looks Ready To Rally

Crude oil in the $60s looks like a gift. War abroad, OPEC talking tough, summer driving season approaching.

Oil prices are turning higher and, IF this marks a tradable bottom, it could mean big things for the Energy Sector ETF (XLE).

Bear in mind, XLE started to reverse course a couple weeks ago (front-running?)… and now it looks poised to retest the $90-$95 resistance level.

$XLE Energy Sector “weekly” Chart

Momentum is turning higher as price looks to reverse off trend support. This reaction could rally up over the $90 level. BUT, the strength of the rally will be tested at resistance ($93-$95 recent highs). That level will determine if this rally is actually the start of something bigger.
