Checking In On The Crude Oil Market

The market for US crude oil futures (CL) has been gyrating quite a bit over the past days and weeks. 

That makes now a good time to check in on this market and see if we can find a direction.

Today, the market is trading off by a good margin… And there could be further to fall before we might see another uptrend. 

So, let’s take a look at the CL market to see what’s shaping up…

The CL daily time frame is in a large up trend.  The market is moving from a high price towards a future low price. 

There is a down Fibonacci with an extension price point 83.55 that meets the daily up trend line. It is expected the market to push bearish towards 83.55 then U-turn bullish. 

If the market holds at the up trend line, it is expected the market to push towards all time highs near price point 147.27, about +5,808 ticks above the market. 

It will be a good idea to stay out of the market until the daily up trend line is hit. 

Then, after the market hits the daily up trend line, it will be a good idea to look for a bullish reversal before turning to the one hour time frame and looking for long ideas.
