Swing Trading Opportunity: CNX Resources (August 2023)

“Pump prices are up by at least 3 cents (SGD) a liter.”, the newscaster reported on radio while I was driving.

My heart sank. 

The price of crude oil has been on the rise for the past 1.5 months, benefitting many companies in the Energy sector. 

Since, energy stocks are enjoying bullish momentum, I shall analyze a stock in that sector this week.

Before I dive in to the stock, let’s review last week’s swing trading opportunity: Amgen (AMGN).

Amgen’s share price rose before returning. I’d still like to see it head lower to its support zone at ~$252 before taking a swing trade based on The Art of Explosive Profits framework.

Alright! Let’s now analyze this week’s swing trading opportunity: CNX Resources (CNX).
