Will the Oils-Energy Sector Catch QE Fatigue?

The stock tried to set another 2012 high on Sept. 14, but did not. The weekly chart is negative with the 200-week SMA at $32.37. Investors and traders should employ a "buy and trade" strategy between the value level and risky level.

National Oilwell Varco (NOV) ($80.55 vs. $72.30 on Aug. 1) continues to have a buy rating according to ValuEngine with a so-so P/E ratio and is above its 200-day SMA at $74.60. NOV set a multi-year high at $89.95 on September 18.

NOV is positive but overbought with the 200-week SMA at $55.20. Investors and traders should employ a "buy and trade" strategy between the value level and risky level.
