Why We Like It:
The U.S. dollar appears to be rolling over after forming a top over the last few weeks. Any extended weakness in the dollar should be bullish for oil. We want to play any oil strength with stocks in the oil services sector. RIG is one of the biggest companies in oil services. Shares of RIG have rallied back to recent resistance in the $86-87 zone. I am suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $87.55. If triggered our first target to take profits is at $93.50. Our second and final target is $99.00 but that could take a few weeks.
Trigger to buy calls @ 87.55
Suggested Position: BUY CALL APRIL $90 (RIG 10D90.00) current ask $1.25
