Nothing Crude About Big Oil Gains

With the stock market still challenged and other financial assets having their own ups and downs, crude oil is gaining trader appeal right now as a viable hedge.

Oil continues to provide periodic gains both this year and last and potentially in the weeks and months to follow.

But the key to profitable trades is to be in at the right entry level as well as being ready to exit at the right levels.

And here’s how I see this month’s developing idea setting up…

The CL daily time frame is in an up trend. The market is making higher highs and higher lows.

However, the market is too high to buy without having large amounts of risk. 

It will be a good idea to wait for the market to give a low price near a known level of U-turn before turning to the one hour time frame and looking for long ideas.
