COLD WINTER COMING?
One of the megatrends going on right now is energy costs rising. Here is a daily chart of Heating Oil, with a blue line just stating the obvious up trend. The fundamentals are actually bearish at this moment, and it is a time of the year where the seasonal high is typically made.
I am actively looking for a short entry in this market, although I am in no hurry to stand in front of this freight train. You can see the small speculators are the ones that are pushing this market higher. All else being equal, we want to fade them in a situation like this. However, we need to see a break in the uptrend in price before anything will happen on the downside.
I have learned the hard way over the years not to fight a moonshot like this, so look for sell signals, but only on price action that represents a break down of the trend.
