-A triangle formed in Crude from 7/19 to 8/21. Triangles are typically resolved in the direction of the larger trend but breakouts from triangles are usually the final leg of a larger move. Exhaustion occurred on 8/28 in the midst of Syria worries.

-Price broke below the trendline that extends off of the 6/25 and 8/22 lows and retested it on the Fed advance before dropping to test the August low and trendline off of the April and June lows.

-Today’s inside day at mentioned support may be the beginning of a bounce, but into a lower top.

Trading Strategy: Exiting half of the short here. 98-99 is a target zone for the rest (January high and 50% retracement of the advance from April).

LEVELS: 98.91 100.40 102.05 | 103.94 104.93 106.10
