Devon Energy DVN to rally 10% or more to catch up to Crude Oil

BATS:DVN   DEVON ENERGY CORP NEW
376 5 4
The recent breakout of the small triangle might be alerting us to a much bigger trade here in DVN             . This is not the first time I have posted a chart on DVN             calling for a move up. However, note the distinct correlation between DVN             ( candlestick chart) and Crude Oil             (Bar chart, faded). The recent rally has been more in the front months of crude oil             (which is known as backwardation, where front months trade above the price of more distant delivery months) and may explain the relative weakness shown by DVN             . There may be a better trade to go short Crude Oil             and Long DVN             and hold for 3-6 months. I would choose to short crude oil             in more distant contracts and not in front months.

Note the very distinctive, blue trendline that connects the 2nd highest low across the highs of each rally. This is not a "normal" way of looking at trendlines , but it makes sense to me. I want to see how high the LOWEST BUYER of the day was in the rally phases. What I am trying to find is the point where the buyers have lifted the stock to in the previous rallies. Two days is more indicative of strength than one, and the pattern seems to show with two days. It appears this has a chance to get through this time if we start to see some volume .

Also note the Interesting collection of triangles together in this base formation. I can't say I have seen this before but it caught my eye and thought it was interesting to see how the market is acting and reacting around previous price action.

Lastly, the very clear symmetrical triangle at the end of this chart, which is after over a year of sideways, base-building action.

Again, look for volume to confirm and be willing to average in over a few days and be ready to buy on dips. I hope this train gives us plenty of time to jump on board before it leaves the station.

DVN reached the target today. I'm clicking on the "closed profit" button. Cheers.

Is anyone on this trade with me? If so, did you short Crude Oil against the DVN long position?

I appreciate this graph, but I'm not sure if it doesn't tell the other side of the story, which is oil is artificially high and out-of-sink with more fundamental economics of the oilfield cycle. Devon tracks the spikes nicely of the past, even when you roll further back in time. So this is divergent for sure, but not sure if DVN is going to break up, or oil is going back down. When you posted this, I was just doing some fundamental analysis of both ESV and DVN, so I'm a fan of the drillers.

What else have you found kocurekc? DVN is following along the forecasted path very nicely and it has coiled-snake pattern set-up right now for it to vault higher in the very near term. I agree with pairing trades together, aka, short crude oil and long DVN.

Did you note that in the graph above that I wrote that the better trade is to go short crude and long DVN?
