Crude Oil Daily Technical Outlook

Oil N' Gold Team from Oil N' Gold at 02/09/10


Nymex Crude Oil (CL)

With 4 hours MACD crossed above signal line, intraday bias in crude oil is turned neutral for the moment. Some more consolidations cannot be ruled out but upside should be limited by 73.94 resistance and bring fall resumption. Below 69.50 will target 100% projection of 83.95 to 72.43 from 78.04 at 66.52 next. However, break of 73.94 will argue that stronger rebound is underway and will put focus back to 78.04 resistance instead.

In the bigger picture, the strong break of medium term trend line support added much credence to the case of reversal. Medium term rise from 33.2, which is treated as a correction to fall from 147.27, should have completed at 83.95 already, on bearish divergence condition in daily MACD. Current fall from 83.95 should extend through 68.59 support towards next key cluster level at 58.32 (50% retracement of 33.2 to 83.95 at 58.58). Decisive break there will strongly suggest that whole decline from 147.27 is resuming for a new low below 33.2. On the upside, break of 78.04 resistance is needed to indicate that fall from 83.95 has completed. Otherwise, outlook will remain bearish.
