What’s the best way to play the recent spike in oil?
The Oil Service HOLDRs (the oil services ETF) has surged more than 7% in 3 days on renewed strength in crude. Are the oil service names a more stable way to play the crude trend?
Right now we’re sitting at the 200 day moving average for the OIH. If it can break and hold above those levels I would be bullish, counsels Pete Najarian. However I prefer specific names in the sector. Get longHalliburton , Schlumberger or Diamond Off-Shore , he says.
There’s been one strategy that’s worked in every asset class, says Jeff Macke, and that’s sell the rip!
Macke's bottom line: Sell, sell sell!!!
