OVX Oil Volatility and WTIC West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil Daily Charts
The OVX oil volatility is a useful gauge to determine oil inflection points. The green circles are very high volatility which is panic and fear in the oil pits which creates a bottom in oil prices. The red circles are complacency and fearlessness, everyone is partying like its 1999 fully expecting oil to continue higher; of course the opposite occurs; oil sells off. What do you think will happen?
Oil is a better play on the short side going forward and a long oil play would not be attractive until the OVX prints above 42 indicating that there is blood in the pits; that is when you want to buy oil. Keystone has no position in oil currently. Any move higher in oil from here forward likely provides a short entry opportunity. This information is for educational and entertainment purposes only.
