Rising oil prices could pose a threat to stocks.

That's the assessment from Matthew Cheslock, an equity trader at Virtu Financial.

"Hopefully [the rally] stalls out here and doesn't affect the transports, which was the big concern [when] it went over $70 last time," Cheslock said.

While rising oil prices don't help transports, large Dow stocks like Exxon Mobil (XOM) - Get Report and Chevron (CVX) - Get Report benefit.
