USOIL Calls For A Bottom Look Premature

USOIL Calls For A Bottom Look Premature

Paul Robinson, Strategist

Talking Points:

  • Bottom pickers look early
  • We’ve seen this price action before, several times
  • A bottom might not be far off, but recent activity suggest lower before higher

Lately, there has been no shortage of chatter surrounding Crude Oil, and with that, also a lot of calls for a bottom. While I agree it appears to be late in the move to initiate new short positions (-57% decline since July), I don’t believe we have the type of price action supportive of a bottom yet. The price action the past couple of weeks has been uninspiring, with nothing more than a move sideways. This lateral movement, a flag pattern if you will, during strong trends more often than not acts merely as a pause before another push takes place in the direction of the prevailing trend. I’ll be sitting tight waiting for more convincing price action before taking action from the long side.
