Chart Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT using Marketscope 2.0
Commodity Analysis: The last 2 days have seen crude spike below 96.00 and above 97.50 yet end the day little changed. The intraday volatility is probably conditioning the market for the next move. In other words, a market with many interests is being cleared so that crude can go where it needs to go. Whether that’s higher or lower, I am not sure but crude has reached and responded to the trendline that extends off of the September and January highs. Barring a break above 100.40, I favor the range, which from here is lower.
Commodity Trading Strategy: The market has responded on an intraweek basis…would like to see if price takes out 98.21 and reverses before attempting a short.
LEVELS: 93.30 94.06 95.21 97.65 98.21 100.40
