Part of the reason why they aren’t acting like natural gas is because there aren’t any pure natural gas companies. Most E&P companies produce oil and have oil and natural gas liquid (NGLs) reserves.
During the cold winter in early 2014, natural gas spiked to $6.50 in February. Natural gas spiked to $6.50 during the cold winter. Prices fell and found a bottom in July.
From that time on, prices have based. We need to see the same thing happen for energy stocks. Prices rarely make a “V” when they fall this much. Once they find a bottom, they tend to base (i.e., trade sideways). This should give us time to position ourselves for the winter.
When the basing starts, I will let you know when it’s time to start buying energy stocks again. For now, this is a time to keep a close eye on the charts … and keep some powder dry … for the opportunities the upcoming heating season will bring.
