Occidental Petroleum (OXY) - Trade Stocks

Occidental Petroleum (OXY)

By Thu, Oct 7, 2021

We’re back with another electric trade, this time from the energy sector!

Commodities get stronger as inflation goes high, and right now inflation is roaring.

The CRB (commodities) Index is at 6-year highs, as is crude oil.

Energy stocks are hot right now, so it makes sense that today’s Chart of the Week is Occidental Petroleum (OXY).

Once we break out of that gorgeous base and go above that 33 level, we are long with a price target of $47.

For anyone looking for another way to play this trade, you can also look at OXY warrants (like options) that expire in 2027.

Or look at the commodity itself, crude oil.

If you’re a futures trader, look at crude oil futures (CL).

We can execute this trade in a variety of ways, depending on your objective, but it’s always about analyzing the underlying asset.

In this case, we’re keeping an eye on crude and targeting our exit in OXY at $47 or whenever crude gets to $100, whichever comes first (both will likely happen at the same time).

Til next week, good trading,
