(Created by Walker England)

Short term price action for the price of Crude Oil may be seen in the 10 minute graph below. Currently, the Grid Sight Index (GSI) is also highlighting a short term uptrend, with a series of higher highs as the price of Crude advances from its daily low at $46.60. After reviewing 3,476,459 pricing points, GSI has indicated that price action has continued to advance $0.23 or more in 54% of the 35 matching historical events. This places today’s first bullish distribution at a price of $47.26, and a move to this price may suggest that Crude Oil may at least find temporary support for the session.

Alternatively, GSI has indicated that prices have declined by $0.48 or more in 20% of the identified historical matches. This places today’s first bearish distribution at $46.55. If prices trade through this point, Crude Oil prices would be trading at fresh daily lows. In this scenario traders may look for bearish momentum to increase with prices potentially trading towards next support at $45.81.
