"I do think that oil is probably going to turn around and probably head back down again," he said.

Some traders discussed moves in oil stocks. Trader Tim Seymour touted French company Total, which gets "the currency tailwind for the euro."

Trader Karen Finerman looked at offshore driller Seadrill, while Grasso noted that Valero shares have risen despite oil's steep decline.

In fact, the stock has jumped about 19 percent in the last year.

Finerman also noted that the Market Vectors Oil Services ETF could be a strong oil play outside of pure stocks or oil itself.
