Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT

Crude reversed right at its former 4th wave last week and the decline from 8897 is in impulsive fashion. As such, I do favor the downside and test of the low (7568). In the event of a collapse, the August 2010 low at 7075 and May 2010 low at 6718 becomes areas of interest. Exceeding 8897 would at least delay the bearish bias and shift focus to 9119 and 9347.
