Crude Weekly Chart

Crude Oil Price Chart - Weekly Timeframe

Technical Outlook: Crude has continued to trade within this broad ascending pitchfork formation dating back to 2015 with prices rebounding off confluence support at the 75% line last week. Critical resistance remains at 54-55, where former trendline support converges on a host of Fibonacci considerations and the early opening-range high.

A near-term pitchfork extending off the yearly lows further highlights the support region defended earlier this month at 49.20/40 – a region defined by the 200-day moving average, former trendline resistance extending off the yearly high (red) and the lower parallel (blue).

The advance has broken back above the monthly open at 51.57 and is now approaching near-term resistance at 52.39. While we could get another pullback from these levels, the focus remains higher while above the lower parallel.

Notes: A closer look at price action shows crude holding within a near-term channel off the monthly lows with the weekly opening range taking shape just above channel support / 51.19. Interim resistance stands at 52.39/45 with a breach above the monthly opening-range highs at 52.79 needed to fuel the next leg higher targeting the yearly open / 100% ext at 53.80/94.

Bottom line: prices remain vulnerable for a near-term pullback here but I’ll be looking to fade weakness into structural support. Look for definitive break of the monthly opening-range to offer further guidance on the medium-term crude outlook.

  • We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests Oil - US Crude prices may continue to rise. However, retail is less net-short than yesterday but more net-short from last week and the combination of current positioning and recent changes gives us a further mixed Crude trading bias from a sentiment standpoint.
