It may have only been a minor gain for the S&P 500 yesterday, but it was enough to break a 5-day losing streak at an important support level.

For today’s video we update our analysis on the S&P 500 E-mini futures contract, then take another look at WTI as it flirts with a break of $70. We then add a US listed energy equity to the bullish watchlist (APA Corp) after a strong close yesterday.
