Investors took advantage of the recent horrid tape in the energy sector to pour money into its SPDR (XLE) last week, the fund taking in more than a $1B - nearly 16% of AUM. The top 3 holdings - Exxon (XOM), Chevron (CVX), and Schlumberger (SLB) - account for 40% of the fund.

    The demand for energy will only increase.
    Investors like those that bought XLE and its components directly as well as Icahn buying a huge stake in Chesapeake Energy obviously realize the pent up demands and took advantage of the pricing aberration in energy being merely noise in the macro view.
    Traders may get nervous and jump off but the long view folks will hang in there and be patient.
