This morning, most of the leading energy stocks are falling sharply lower. The catalyst for the decline today in the energy sector is the weak price of crude oil. Today, crude oil is dropping by $1.74 to $45.34 a barrel. This is a decline of about 3.70 percent on the trading session.
Most of the leading integrated energy stocks such as Exxon Mobil Corporation(NYSE:XOM), Chevron Corporation(NYSE:CVX), ConocoPhillips(NYSE:COP), and BP plc (ADR)(NYSE:BP) are coming under severe selling pressure today. All of these daily stock charts look weak and could still have more downside before finding a bottom. Chevron Corporation(NYSE:CVX) looks attractive for a major bounce around the $100.00 level. This area was defended in 2016 and should still be defended again when retested.
