    the AAII survey for june 24th barely budged……bulls still just 24.1% -0.2 and the bears 48.9% +1.1%….hard to see this market getting hit too badly when the public is this nervous…

    Rally developing in financials. Tony Dwyer on CNBC yesterday called 3,000 more or less the bottom of this drop. This has to be one of the most difficult markets to invest in. The complete economic uncertainty when you have a pandemic going combined with central banks printing money like crazy to juice economies is not something we have had to deal. As soon as someone declares that they have a vaccine ready to go into production you know the bulls are going to run but when. You also have the November election coming up and Biden wants to raise corporate taxes which is negative.

    Anyone has an opinion on oil, please share. Seasonality!
    Thanks and good luck trading.

    Re 3 – Why not try a better asset class with more certainty like tech? Energy is for trading not investing. It’s in long-term decline. You have overproduction so you have that working against you. You have a pandemic that has shut down economies around the world and consumption will be slow to recover. It’s like the show where you bid on a garage and you don’t know what your going to get and you hope you lucked out. Go for what is more certain. Okay XOP is up today after being oversold on STO but not oversold RSI. Energy is kind of going along with banks and why won’t invest in banks either.You had a loosening of US bank regulation announced today and that is thankfully giving them a boost which is good for the overall market. They are still going to have all sorts of problems.

    Thanks for your suggestion. However, its only a trade I am looking for in energy. Later this year I may invest in CDN banks.
