How to Trade Oil: Crude Oil Trading Strategies & Tips.

Crude oil continues to drift lower, dragging equity markets down in its wake, on a combination of rising US oil output and heightened US-China trade war concerns. The latest move lower has broken the recent uptrend and further losses cannot be discounted.

Global equity markets are a sea of red Thursday as investors continue to shed riskier assets. A backdrop of growing fears that US-China trade negotiations are going nowhere continue to weigh on global growth expectations, with some equity markets nearing multi-week lows.

The technical picture for oil is suggesting marginally lower prices with support from the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level at $70.56/bbl. broken on Wednesday. Oil has also fallen through the recent uptrend off the May 6 low around $68.76/bbl. and this low now becomes the next downside target. Below here the 200-day moving average at $67.30/bbl. comes into play. The CCI indicator has moved into oversold territory and this may stem, or slow down, current negative price sentiment.
