Keep an eye on oversold oil.

At $67.82, crude is sitting at support dating back to late 2021. It’s also oversold on RSI, MACD, and Williams’ %R. And we expect to see oil come back strong – especially with summer driving season just around the corner.

“Fears surrounding the banking sector witnessed the price of oil spiral south over the course of last week, shedding more than 13.0%, its largest one-week decline in months,” said FX Street.

With most of the fear now priced into oil prices, we’re betting on a pivot in Exxon Mobil (XOM), Chevron (CVX), Occidental Petroleum (XOY), and these ETFs.
