This Week’s Idea: Looking for Longs in Crude Oil

I share my top trade setups whenever I have a big, new idea for the market.

And to invite a global audience, I provide the core chart and discussion on my TradingView page.

The crude oil (CL) futures market has pulled back from its recent highs, but it has found some potential support at its longer term up trend line this week.

The next leg to the upside could be getting underway soon, but the market will have to get into the buy zone first…

Crude Oil Ready to Rally?

Here’s how I see the CL chart setting up for this week’s idea…

The CL daily time frame is near a low price hitting the long term up trend line.

If support holds, it is expected the market will push bullish above the short term down trend line entering into the buy zone.

Once or if the market breaks and closes above the short term down trend line and enters into the buy zone, it will be a good idea to apply an up Fibonacci to find the next bullish Fibonacci price target.

Then, we can turn to the one hour time frame to look for low prices in the buy zone.

Until then, it is better to be out of the market wishing to be in than to be in the market wishing to be out.
