Energy Update

March 23rd, 2021

Signals and set ups


During a long term buy signal, investors can accumulate positions by cost averaging at cycle bottoms, ideally when prices are at or near the daily 200ema.
During a long term sell signal, investors should be hedged or in cash.

Simply buy and sell upon buy/sell signals on the daily charts, or cost average in at cycle bottoms when prices are at or near the daily 200ema; and cost average out at cycle tops when prices are above the daily 50ema.

Will be conservative when volatility is high, and aggressive when volatility is low.

Current signals
