Chevron's most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Chevron is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $112.00 short call and a strike $117.00 long call offers a potential 35.5% return on risk over the next 21 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $112.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $1.31 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $3.69 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $117.00 long call strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Chevron is bearish and the probability of a decline in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.
The 20-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Chevron is bearish.
The RSI indicator is below 20 which suggests that the stock is in oversold territory.

The producer group is considering pushing forward a meeting initially scheduled for March, according to Algeria’s energy minister, amid the price slump.“What we’re seeing this year and are going to continue seeing is that the geopolitical premium doesn’t stick,” said Vandana Hari, founder of energy consultant Vanda Insights in Singapore. The underlying reason for that “is the view that the oil market is well supplied,” she said.West Texas Intermediate crude for March delivery fell 1.5% to $52.55 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange as of 7:34 a.m. in London after closing down 0.3% on Wednesday.
