WTI Crude Oil Price Forecast: Daily Breakout Exposes Yearly Highs

(Created by Walker England)

This daily breakout, has signaled a resumption of bullish momentum after Crude Oil put in a new monthly low at $39.17. This low is still working as a value of support, and is now considered a higher swing low in a broader uptrend beginning from the 2016 low of $26.03. A move through short term values of resistance should be viewed as significant, as it opens up Crude Oil prices to trade back towards yearly highs found at $51.64.

Traders should note that if prices fail to stay above the descending trendline depicted above, and price action closes below yesterday’s low, it would invalidated yesterday’s breakout . In this scenario where price are rejected at resistance, Crude Oil prices may be setting into a broader consolidating pattern.
