ConocoPhillips stock didn’t hold its weekly gain

Despite strong gains in crude oil prices, ConocoPhillips’s stock price rose 0.06% from $52.96 to $52.99 last week. After rising by more than one percentage point on Monday, ConocoPhillips traded in a narrow range on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Thursday and Friday, ConocoPhillips traded with a negative bias and gave up most of its gains for the week. At the end of the week, ConocoPhillips generated a reversal candlestick pattern on the weekly chart, which indicates that ConocoPhillips’s uptrend might take a breather.
