Focus Chart of the Day: Crude

Price & Time: Big Test Coming Up For Crude

Crude has been remarkably weak since peaking out around the Pi cycle turn window this past June (Read HERE). Upside corrections have all been modest and few and far between. With sentiment back at extremes (DSI at 8% bulls on Monday) the contrarian in us can’t help but wonder if the commodity is getting a bit over “hated” on and nearing some sort of counter-trend reprieve. The key price inflection point coming up looks to between $75.50 and $73.50 a barrel as this marks a nice convergence of the 50% retracement of the 2008-2011 advance, the 200% extension of the 1H14 range, the 161.8% projection of the late 2013 decline and a median line connecting the 2013 and 2014 highs. If oil is going to meaningfully bounce one would expect it to occur from somewhere around this price zone (perhaps a couple dollars lower as it is Crude after all!) . Failure to find support around this confluence will open the door to a slide into the mid-60’s.
