Crude Oil Prices Consolidate After Initial Brexit Decline

Crude Oil Prices Consolidate After Initial Brexit Decline

Walker England, Forex Trading Instructor


Talking Points

  • WTI Crude Oil Price Declines to a New Weekly Low After UK Vote
  • Prices are Now Consolidating in a Symmetrical Triangle
  • A Decline in Crude Oil Price Under $46.69 May Signal a Resumption of the Trend

WTI Crude Oil (CFD: US OIL) prices are currently consolidating after initially dropping to new weekly lows at $46.69. This extreme move in Crude Oil price was directly related to the US Dollar rally that occurred immediately after the release of yesterday’s UK vote. Now that much of the volatility of yesterday’s event has subsided, traders should continue to monitor support and resistance values to help determine the markets next move.
