  • Oil: Pattern Changed 0 comments
    Jun 14, 2013 12:15 PM | about stocks: USO, DTO, SCO

    Oil (both WTI and Brent) had a set pattern last couple of weeks. Was going down overnight and then up after US markets open. Today pattern was reversed: oil up overnight and going down since 10 AM EST.

    I traded this pattern several time. Today it was a loss. Well, let's wait for another pattern to emerge.

    Possible tools to play if you don't have futures account (I qualify but prefer to trade on the safer side with ETFs):

    USO (long WTI ETF)

    DTO (double short ETN)

    SCO (double short ETF).

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, but may initiate a long position in DTO over the next 72 hours.

    Additional disclosure: Positions can change any time.

    Stocks: USO, DTO, SCO
