Crude Oil Price: Support Break Hints at Deeper Losses

Crude Oil Price: Support Break Hints at Deeper Losses

Talking Points:

  • Crude Oil Prices Vulnerable to Deeper Losses After Support Break
  • Sellers Now Eye Support Above $45 Figure en Route to August Lows

Crude oil appears poised for deeper losses after prices slipped below chart support above the $47/barrel figure. The Brent crude contract found resistance below the $55/barrel figure and turned downward having launched a sharp corrective recovery after plunging to a six-year low in late August.

From here, a daily close below the 50% Fibonacci expansion at 45.58 opens the door for a test of the 61.8% level at 43.52. Alternatively, a move back above the 38.2% Fib at 47.63 clears the way for a challenge of falling trend line resistance set from the August 31 high, now at 49.24.
