Talking Points

  • Crude Oil Prices are Channeling Higher
  • WTI May Find Short Term Resistance Under $48.62
  • Channel Support is Found Near $47.80

WTI Crude Oil (CFD: US OIL) prices are currently channeling higher, after bouncing from monthly lows at $41.84. Much of today’s advance in Crude Oil has been predicated on a tightening in oil supply, as well as a general rebound in international markets. As prices rise, traders should be mindful that Crude Oil has still not recovered completely from Friday’s decline. For this reason, it will remain important to monitor short-term momentum and key values of support and resistance.

After reviewing 3,870,878 pricing points, GSI has indicated that price action has declined a minimum of 14 cents in 57% of the 686 matching historical events. Traders looking for a retracement to channel support should monitor the first bearish distribution found at 48.16. A move through this value, may suggest a move lower for Crude Oil Prices. At which point traders may begin to monitor channel support to determine if markets will bounce or decline further.

Prices only advanced 32 cents in 14% of the previously noted historical events, making a move to this point significant.
