Whiting Petroleum (NYSE:WLL) crossed over its 10-day moving average of $32.90 on a volume of 4.8 million shares. This may provide short-term investors a chance for a long position, as such a crossover often suggests higher prices in the near term.

The Company focuses on lower risk, long-lived oil and natural gas properties located primarily in the Gulf Coast/Permian Basin, Rocky Mountains, Michigan, and Mid-Continent regions of the United States.
