The drop in crude oil over the past week has turned the daily OBV negative, so it looks like we were wrong about an upside breakout. The S&P energy sector has declined sharply and is testing its uptrend, as is the oil services sector. After a bounce from this support, I would then expect a decline to the 200-day MAs.
