Crude Oil Daily Technical Outlook

Oil N' Gold Team from Oil N' Gold at 01/20/10


Nymex Crude Oil (CL)

Crude oil dipped further to 76.76 but recovered strongly since then. Downside momentum remains unconvincing with 4 hours MACD staying above signal line and intraday bias is still neutral. Nevertheless, note that another fall is expected as long as 79.62 minor resistance holds and below 76.76 will target 83.95 towards 61.8% retracement of 68.59 to 83.95 at 74.46. But downside should be contained there and bring rally resumption. On the upside, above 79.26 minor resistance will flip intraday bias back to the upside for retesting 83.95 resistance first. Further break of 83.95 high will target upper trend line resistance at 87/88 level again. However, note that sustained trading below 74.46 fibo support will argue that rise from 68.59 has completed and will turn focus back to this key support level.

In the bigger picture, whole medium term rise from 33.2 is still in progress but after all, there is no change in the view that it's merely a correction to fall from 147.27. Therefore, we'd continue to look for reversal signal in case of another rise and as crude oil approaches 50% retracement of 147.27 to 33.2 at 90.24, which is close to 90 psychological level. On the downside, however, considering continuous bearish divergence condition in daily MACD, a break of 68.59 support will confirm that a medium term top is in place and will turn outlook bearish for a retest on 33.2 low as correction from 147.27 resumes.
