WTI Crude Oil

The WTI Crude Oil markets gapped higher to kick off the Friday session, pulled back a bit, and then rally again. As we are attempting to break above the $54 level, it’s very likely that we are seeing a recovery in the markets that could lead to a bigger move. After all, the weekly chart has formed a hammer, which of course is a very bullish sign. With that in mind, as we crossed the $55 level it makes a lot of sense that we will go looking towards $57.50, and then eventually the $60 level.

Is this the beginning of some type of major uptrend? I doubt it, but it is most certainly a market that is willing to bounce after being oversold. With that in mind, I believe that the next several days should be bullish on balance, so I’m looking for short-term pullbacks show signs of support and long wicks to take advantage of.

Brent markets also gapped higher to kick off the trading session, reaching above the $63 level. Now that we have done that, it makes sense that we would continue to go higher, probably reaching towards the $65 level. I believe that the $65 level of course will cause a certain amount of psychological resistance, but structurally speaking I don’t think it’s going to be that big of a deal. At this point, I believe that Brent will probably go looking towards the $70 level above, which of course will be much more important due to the fact that it is such a large, round, significant figure. Remember, we have recently been hearing a lot about how oil is in a bear market on financial channels, which is almost always the first sign that we are close to the bottom of the market.
