    Rol Lew,

    That’s the way I have it also, IMO is at resistance.

    Most oil and gas companies look to have bottomed near term and are starting to build on the bases. Quarterly results start to come out later this month in the US (Chevron, Exxon, Imperial) which should hint at what is in store for Canada. Expect good results (not as great as Q3, but starting to turn upwards again) and strong fundamentals under the industry. Looking at a target to exceed Q3 share prices, but this market is fickle. CVE is the leader in cash return to shareholders (100% starting around now), so how this stock performs may be a preview to the rest of the industry later in 2023/2024. CVE has gone sideways since June 2022 building a major base. Shorter term, has been hitting higher lows and building an ascending triangle. Any estimates where happens once we break out?

  4. Ron/BC Says:


    CVE (NYSE} has been trading in a tight range for a few weeks now and looks like it will breakout to the upside. Would not want to see price break $!8 meanwhile. With a tight range breakout price suggests a fast move up to 22 after a brief battle with 20.50/. (Not an easy chart to read) That’s what I see fwiw……..

  5. Bman/Van Says:

    Ron. Thanks for the response and graph. Fingers crossed the breakout is only the beginning of a new trend for 2023 upwards and to the right.

  6. Ron/BC Says:

    The $SPX continues to trade in a downtrend over the last year inspite of various rallies. She’s still a very sick puppy…………………

    Here is a link to the current Ciovacco video:

    What I took away from this week’s presentation was the outperformance of global stocks vs the US.

    I like looking at a weekly chart to get a more long term perspective for a possible longer term hold.
