USO-Daily Chart
USO-Daily Chart

Energy plays have some of the best chart setups right now from a momentum breakout standpoint. A perfect example of this can be seen in the above chart of the United States Oil Fund (NYSE:USO).

Currently, USO has been consolidating within an upward trend near its key resistance area from $82 to $83. Additionally, at the bottom of the chart, we can find our RealMotion (RM) momentum indicator. Though it is sticking close to the 50-Day moving average (blue line), it has yet to clear back over.

With that said, the best buy signal would be for both price and momentum to clear their resistance levels at the same time. This would confirm that price along with momentum is in agreement since USO’s price is already trading over its 50-DMA. If able to break out, this could boost already strong energy companies even higher.

Energy companies with similar setups are Viper Energy Partners (NASDAQ:VNOM) and CenterPoint Energy (NYSE:CNP).

Both cleared recent consolidation and have momentum either breaking or on the verge of breaking a major moving average. Furthermore, these could be interesting picks, especially if USO clears and holds over $83.

With the Fed setting investors' expectations for more 50 basis point rate hikes, safety plays through energy companies look to have more upside potential.
