CRUDE OIL Prices are once again testing support at 97.70 following a rejection at familiar resistance in the 101.28-103.35 region. The downside is reinforced by resistance-turned-support at the top of a falling channel set from mid-November, now at 96.85. A break below the latter boundary initially exposes 95.78, the November 23 close.

US DOLLAR Prices broke below the midline and top of a falling channel in place since mid-December, exposing a former Head & Shoulders neckline at 9823 as sellers’ next objective. A breach of this level on a daily closing basis would amount to a meaningful bearish change in tone for the greenback. The channel midline, now effectively at the 9900 figure, has been recast as near-term resistance.
