XOM has an excellent technical rating and also presents a decent setup pattern. Prices have been consolidating lately and the volatility has been reduced. A pullback is taking place, which may present a nice opportunity for an entry. There is a resistance zone just above the current price starting at 113.95. Right above this resistance zone may be a good entry point. There is a support zone below the current price at 111.73, a Stop Loss order could be placed below this zone.
