Original Trade Post:

Oil Refiners are showing some strong strength relative to the broader market today. Valero is a standout, up 2.65% on the day. I see some topping processes carrying out in the Integrated names like COP and XOM, and maybe the next oil derivative trade is in the Oil refiners. I like what I am seeing in Tesoro today. A break above trendline that started a downtrend on Feb 28th, is showing some force. The break-out occurred, the stock pulled back to the trendline, and buyers came in and pushed the stock back above the trendline.
