For two weeks in a row, an energy name is our chart of the week. That’s no accident, as crude is expected to continue its run higher through the end of 2018. Anadarko Petroleum is a strong, diversified oil name that has lagged the entire group, but it has an intriguing chart setup here that is worth a look.
The W pattern sticks out like a sore thumb, which is usually pretty bullish. Other indicators are also confirming the price action, except for the CMF. It’s just a matter of time before that indicator goes green. Because volume trends have been solid, I believe the path of the stock will eventually lead to a gap from around the 74 level.
With crude expected to remain bullish, Anadarko should see more upside as the rising tide lifts all boats.
