Crude Oil Futures Trading: Anadarko (NYSE:APC), Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Halliburton (NYSE:HAL), Cameron (NYSE:CAM), BP (NYSE:BP)

After seeing oil shares drop so sharply yesterday, todays crude oil futures trading prices have seen an increase in not only BP (NYSE:BP), but also Anadarko (NYSE:APC),
Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Halliburton (NYSE:HAL), and Cameron (NYSE:CAM). This extreme drop, which was BP's lowest since at least 1972, was said to be caused by the fear of the impending financial doom of the full scale of BP's fuel spill and the possibility of BP filing bankruptcy.

Today, investors were buying as quickly as they were selling yesterday. This gave BP a boost as well as oil stock prices across the board. Raymond James analyst Alex Morris said, "there was a lot of fear in the market yesterday, people maybe have slept on it and are getting a little less scared of the stock. People might just be thinking that yesterdays sell off was overblown and premature."

BP climbed almost 8 percent to $31.50, reaching the high of the day at $33.04.

Anadarko Petroleum rose 8.6 percent to $37.84, this was also after a huge loss on Wednesday of 19 percent. Anadarko is a minority share holder in the Macondo well.

Transocean was up to 4.5 percent to $44.52, there loss yesterday was 8.1 percent.

Halliburton dropped only 2 percent on Wednesday, but today saw a 5 percent rise to $23.72. Cameron was up 4.4 percent to $35.62.
