Here's What to Do If You Took Our Profitable Oil Advice

By Amber Lee Mason and Brian Hunt, DailyWealth Trader
Thursday, September 6, 2012

If you took our advice and shorted oil stocks, you now have the trend in your favor...
 
For the past month, we've shown you how oil stocks in general were in an overbought condition... and vulnerable to a sharp, short-term correction.
 
We based our thesis on one of Jeff Clark's favorite indicators, the bullish percent index. This index measures overbought/oversold conditions in a sector.  
 
When a sector reaches an extreme oversold condition, it's due for a sharp rally. When a sector reaches an extreme overbought condition, it's vulnerable to a sharp correction. It's just part of the ups and downs of the stock market.
 
Over the past several trading sessions, our advice has proved to be right on. Below is a six-month chart of big oil services stock Schlumberger (SLB). It has suffered the short-term decline we expected. 
 
It's not just Schlumberger declining. An inverse oil fund that Jeff Clark recently recommended an option trade on has bottomed around $8.25 per share... and is now working higher. (Remember, inverse funds rise in value as a sector falls.)  
 
If you took our advice, you're starting to make money on this trade. But this sector enjoyed a huge run from late June to early August – Schlumberger, for instance, gained 28% in less than two months – and it still has plenty of short-term gains to give back.
 
So if you're still short, congratulations... you're starting to make money... And you can expect more gains to come.
 
Regards,

Resource expert Matt Badiali says oil prices have much farther to fall. With the "dumb money" piling into oil – and massive new supplies coming online – he believes we could see a collapse in the near future.
