The stock market can’t make up its mind.
We’re down one day, rallying the next and back down again.
The S&P 500 is trading below its 100-day moving average for the first time since the end of October 2020…
That said, we’re only 5% off record highs.
When we look at options order flow, the put/call ratio was moving down Wednesday, so we don’t see a lot of big put orders coming in.
Instead, with markets still near highs, institutional traders continue to focus on short-dated options.
About the only sector seeing any sustained, long-dated buying is Energy… and for good reason.
Let’s take a look at why and see which of the top energy stocks for winter 2021 are hitting the tape…
The Top Energy Stocks for Winter 2021
Ever since the 2014 oil crash, the consumer market has had the benefit of cheap oil and natural gas prices from years of over production from the shale boom.
The sector was still dealing with the effects of the third largest price drop in history, so when the pandemic cratered demand almost overnight, production slowed to a crawl and more than 100 oil and gas companies declared bankruptcy in 2020.
Most of those resources were scooped up by other top energy stocks, but production has been slow to ramp up.
To make matters worse, this past summer was the hottest on record in the US.
Beating that heat meant more gas was burned to power everyone’s air conditioners, and less gas put in storage — hence why we should take a look at the top energy stocks for winter 2021.
The supply crunch is causing gas futures to jump above $5 for the first time since 2014 — and helping 3D Profit Surges score a 32% win on Energy Transfer LP (NYSE: ET) in just over a week!
Those future prices are likely to trend higher as we head into winter… And it’s forecasted to be a cold one.
Analysts from Goldman Sachs are on record saying that gas prices could easily double if those forecasts hold!
This is in part why institutional buyers are picking up long-dated calls in the top energy stocks for winter 2021… names like Antero Resources Corp. (NYSE: AR), Range Resources Corp. (NYSE: RRC) and Occidental Petroleum Corp. (NYSE: OXY). The bulls came back for OXY on Wednesday after making Tuesday’s Blitz Daily short list, picking up another $268,000 in premium!
There are lots of names seeing repeat, long-term order flow so traders looking to jump in wait for flat or down days.

P.S. Ever wonder why Wall Street always seems to be one step ahead of the average Joe trader?
It’s because the big firms have a ton of top-secret trading strategies that give them an edge over everyone else!
And while their methods are usually kept under lock and key… I’m pulling back the curtain on Wall Street’s best kept market strategy.
I’m ready to reveal how tracking what I call a “Shadow Blitz” can help predict which stocks are ready to explode…
