The CL one hour time frame is in a large sideways movement. 

The market is near the bottom of the range and showing signs it could push bullish towards the top of the range. 

Entry: Counter trend line break bullish above the bottom of the consolidation range. 

Stop: In the sell zone below the entry. 

Limit: 99.02 Once or if the market gives the one hour entry. 

As long as the market stays in the buy zone, it will be a good idea to turn to the five minute time frame and to look for Tunnel Trader / Destination Trader / Chandelier Trader long ideas towards the price target.
