Crude Nearing Key Pivot

Crude Nearing Key Pivot

Kristian Kerr, Sr. Currency Strategist

Talking Points

  • USOIL closing in on important resistance
  • Breakout or breakdown looming in Crude?

Last month we argued that the start of May was a good time for Crude to attempt to stage a reversal. Crude responded well to this turn window with the absolute high coming right on the May 6th focus date. However, downside follow through has been limited since then as the commodity has chopped around a narrowing 4 dollar range. For us to get more excited about a more important top we would need to see a daily settlement below 58.00 – and soon. There is now plenty of risk that the correction we were looking for has been the range of the past few weeks. A daily close over 62.50 would invalidate the negative cyclicality from the beginning of the month, but a move through long-term median line resistance now around 61.00 would be a strong sign that market is trying to trend up again.
