$XOP Buy Signal: Is Opportunity Knocking For Oil & Gas ETF?

We felt like trapped bulls when the Oil & Gas Exploration ETF (XOP) got above our MFU-3 price target of $156 and then turned sharply lower in a short amount of time.

The entire energy sector corrected in very short order.

That said, this pullback has not changed the long-term bullish view in the sector and, if anything, it has provided an opportunity for active investors that missed the initial run with a chance to get in. 

XOP is also showing a buy signal this week based on one of the mechanical systems we use. The last time this signal triggered was 8/23/21.

Though the markets are sure to be volatile, we think the energy sector is ripe with opportunity.
