Talking Points

  • Key cyclical turning point next week
  • Waiting for sentiment to turn more lopsided

The first half of next week looks potentially important for Crude from a time cycle perspective. Several short and longer-term cyclical methods converge around this time which suggests to us that the commodity is vulnerable to a reversal. Given the rather persistent grind higher over the past few weeks we favor some kind of top. A key variable we look for around these windows is an extreme in sentiment. One of our favorite metrics for gauging this is the Daily Sentiment Index or DSI which is a daily survey of short-term futures traders. As of Wednesday’s close, DSI was only around 77% bulls. Before trying to fade such a strong trend we will look for DSI to get closer to 85% bulls and price to at least test resistance near $105.00.
