After taking a beating for months, oil seems to have found its footing, at least temporarily.
As investors try to determine where oil will bottom, CNBC's "Fast Money" traders looked at how to trade its mini-rally.
"I still feel further downside is ahead," said trader Guy Adami.
Adami saw uncertainty in big oil names. ExxonMobil shares moved about 2.5 percent higher, just below $90 per share, after a mixed earnings report on Monday.
The stock should continue to hit "lower lows and lower highs" and top out around its current level, Adami said. Trader Steve Grasso stressed that oil inventories should see a "huge glut," keeping prices low and affecting refiners including ExxonMobil and Valero, which jumped nearly 3 percent on Monday.
While she said that she had "definitely not picked the bottom," trader Karen Finerman looked at April calls in offshore driller Seadrill, which jumped more than 10 percent on Monday.
Trader Tim Seymour noted than airlines had been struggling before oil, a key operating cost, started to rise. Delta Airlines went "back near the bottom of a range" where it looks appealing, he said.
