Light Crude 03-08
Crude remains strong and the larger trend is considered up as long as price is above 6859 (under there completes a longer term head and shoulders top). Still, at least a setback looks likely near term as there are 5 waves up from the February low (and wave v is a diagonal). 8286-8350 is potential resistance from a gap. Expect weakness to at least below 7705. 7613 is potential support. It is possible that the rally from the February low completes wave C of an A-B-C flat. An impulsive decline from near current price would confirm as much.
