Some opportunities still exist in the oil sector even as the commodity continues to slide, CNBC "Fast Money" traders said Tuesday.
U.S. crude closed 20 cents lower, at $52.33, a day after dropping more than 7 percent. Iran's potential nuclear deal that would bring more supply into the market and the restart of a key oil terminal in Libya pressured prices.
Amid volatility, some possibly "oversold" exploration and production names may offer cheap entry points, said trader Steve Grasso. He looked to EOG Resources and Pioneer Natural Resources, which have shed more than 5 and 8 percent this year, respectively.
If oil continues to fall, Baker Hughes shares could fall into an attractive range, said trader Dan Nathan. The stock looks appealing around $55 per share, about $5 lower than where it closed Tuesday.
