Crude Oil Price Forecast – Crude Oil Markets Rallied AgainCrude oil markets rallied again during the trading session on Monday, as we continue to see a lot of bullish pressure in the risk on variety. At this point, the market is in the middle of a larger consolidation area, so it makes sense that we could see bit of noise here.
WTI Crude Oil
The WTI Crude Oil market has rallied during the trading session on Monday, as we continue to go back and forth in a larger consolidation area. We are broken above the 200 day EMA, and it now looks as if the market is trying to figure out what to do with the gap that it has just filled. Ultimately, I do think that we probably go higher, but looking at this chart it’s obvious that there is massive support starting at $52 underneath, and massive resistance at $60 above. Ultimately, I like the idea of buying short-term dips, but I would not get married to position.

Brent markets gapped higher as well and have broken above the recent resistance. It looks as if we are going to head towards the 200 day EMA at the $63.60 level, which is an area that has a lot of clustering in the past as well. Ultimately, this is a market that should continue to see upward pressure, reaching towards the $65 handle, and then possibly the $70 level after that. At this point, short-term pullbacks should have plenty of support near the $60 level, and I look at that as a short-term “floor” in the market. All things being equal I think that buying short-term pullback should continue to be a buying opportunity in order to take advantage of short-term volatility to the upside. With OPEC likely to cut production in December, that could offer a little bit of buying pressure.
