West Texas Intermediate Oil

The West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil market has initially pulled back a bit during the trading session on Thursday, but then turned around to show signs of strength again as continuing optimism floods into the market. That being said, it is quite interesting considering that there is a gap above and it is likely that it will probably get filled given enough time. That does not mean that it will be easy, and I do think that once we get to the top of the gap, closer to the $41 level, there is the 200 day EMA coming into focus there as well, so I think that is about as far as that goes. To the downside, there is plenty of support at the $30 level and of course the 50 day EMA.

Brent markets have also pulled back slightly but then showed signs of life again as the market continues to see a lot of support based upon the 50 day EMA. Ultimately, this is a market that I think continues to see a lot of noise, but it is choppy to say the least and therefore you have to be overly cautious. The $40 level above starts to begin of a major gap that extends to the $45 level, so it is likely that we could see a bit of interest in trying to fill that as well. To the downside, it is not until we break the $30 level that uncomfortable shorting. Granted, economies are opening but demand is going to be weak.
