The seasonal strength for energy names is from the end of January to the start of May. The demand for energy product has been stellar. There is a trend of lower lows but that has been broken now. Everything looks good for this except for the fact that the seasonal strength is over, and the easy money has been made already. There is another period of strength in July. You might want to pause.

Parts of the market where you want to flock to during the summer. One of those defensive summer names. High yield. May to August is the period of strength. Not a home run stock but provides a volatility hedge. If rates go much higher, it could have problems. Classic shoulder-head-shoulder from a technical perspective.
