Crude Oil Forecast: Technical Range Continues

Traders watching intraday values of support and resistance should note that Crude Oil is currently trading near today’s S3 pivot at $46.93. If the price of Crude drops below this point it opens the commodity up to test the S4 pivot at $46.51. In this scenario, prices would be breaking the bottom of the previously mentioned trading range and would suggest further weakness for Crude Oil. If prices remains supported, this opens Crude Oil prices to rebound back towards values of resistance. For today that includes the R3 pivot at $47.76, and the R4 pivot at $48.20.
