Getting Long the Oil Service Holders - OIH

The Oil Service Holders Trust ticker OIH, (chart above) is one of the few sectors I can get excited about because it is in a bull market. I realise the overall markets are in bear mode, but we must remember energy, precious metals, and commodities in general are in a bull market.

As my notes indicate we are getting a correction after a breakout which I am going to take advantage of. I am using this pullback in the OIH to its breakout area to get long 1 unit here at $185.95 with a stop at 177.64

Good speculating to you all and never ever forget that "an investor is a speculator who made a mistake and will not admit it".

Personally, I'm holding off just a bit on both OIH and DIG/XLE. Thinking of a 2-3% trailing buy stop to enter.
