Crude Oil Prices Reach Highest Level Since July 2015 - How Much Farther?

Crude Oil Prices Reach Highest Level Since July 2015 - How Much Farther?

Crude oil prices have finally broken above its two year price range to reach its highest level since July 2015. The sideways consolidation in crude oil charts best as a sideways triangle consolidation.

The Elliott Wave model we have been following has anticipated the bullish triangle and that crude oil may see further strength. The model notes the triangle terminated on August 31, 2017 and that the triangle was an ‘X’ wave of a W-X-Y wave. Therefore, the break higher suggests we are in the ‘Y’ wave. The ‘Y’ wave can take a couple different forms. The most likely form would be a zigzag.

There are a few guidelines to the formation of a zigzag. At today’s high, one possibility is that crude oil satisfied minimum requirements for this zigzag. If that pattern holds, then crude oil may be on the front edges of a long decline back towards the 2016 lows.

We are not certain of those odds. The momentum has been strong to the upside so we need to be mindful that crude oil prices may continue to work higher. The next wave relationship comes in near $61 per barrel. If price does continue higher, look for a stronger reaction to take place near $60.70 to $61.50.

Bottom line, we are in a terminal or ending wave of a two year sequence. If crude oil prices continue to shoot higher, look for stronger resistance to form near $61 per barrel.

Struggling with your trading? You could be making this common trading mistake.
