Crude Holding above 9500-For Now
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
Near term, crude weakness (from 104.60) may also be a B wave. Like gold, the implications are for a test of the high (104.60) before weakness resumes. Resistance comes in at 106.05 (former support) and 107.11 (61.8% retracement). The colored bars above indicate instances when the monthly support/resistance indicator is at -9. The level indicates an important moment in time in which price will either reverse sharply or continue lower. Having already broken the pivot low at 98.02, a bearish resolution seems more likely (there does remain potential for continued corrective strength however).
Support/Resistance Index (M,W,D) – (9), 0, 3
