Approaching Resistance: Valero

New York, May 6th ( - Shares of Valero Energy Corporation (NYSE:VLO) are trading very close to calculated resistance at $39.23. The stock ended the trading session at just $37.59, which is near levels that make it difficult to buy or start a position.

Valero Energy Corporation (NYSE:VLO) is an independent petroleum refining and marketing company that owns and operates refineries in the United States, Canada, and Aruba. The Company produces conventional gasolines, distillates, jet fuel, asphalt, and a series of petrochemicals and lubricants.

Valero's stock range is defined by its calculated support defined at $35.29 and by the resistance level at $39.23; the stock is clearly over-extended from support, making it harder for participants to establish fresh longs.

Traders don't have a clear entry point for Valero. However, as the stock pulls back towards $35.29 it will definitely provide a reference point to establish a trade. On the other hand, if the stock breaks above its resistance level at $39.23 then traders will get an opportunity to enter the stock as it moves to a higher range.
