WTI Crude Oil
The West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil market has done almost nothing during the trading session as we continue to dance around the same area that we have been in previously. The 200 day EMA sits just above, just as the 50 day EMA sits just below. Ultimately, this is a market that cannot seem to get its direction together, and therefore we simply go back and forth. There are concerns about demand, which of course is going to be an issue if we are going to have multiple economies around the world starting to slow down or even locked down. On the other hand, we also have an oversupply issue. The one thing that may send this market higher is the idea of stimulus.

The Brent market also is going back and forth around a very tight range, as the 50 day EMA is currently sitting right at the $43 area. Ultimately, this is a market that also need to see some type of stimulus coming out of the United States in order for the rest of the world to suddenly jump in the idea of more demand for crude oil. If we do break higher, the 200 day EMA sitting just below the $45 level is going to be a major issue. Signs of exhaustion will be sold into, and that is from what I see the best trade available right now. To the downside, the $42 level is somewhat supportive, and most certainly the $40 level will be. We are essentially stuck in some type of tight range.
