CLEAR PRICE CHANNEL MAY PROMPT BIG BREAKOUT OR BREAKDOWN MOVE IN OIL

In this report, I discuss the recent price action in crude oil and how economic conditions and the pennant flag chart pattern is indicating a big price move is about to take place over the next few weeks.  While some of you may want a clear, bold prediction as to whether a breakout or breakdown may happen, as technical traders, our job is to predict different possible setups and identify the criteria that will tell us when to enter the trade upon confirmation. Read below to learn more.

Crude Oil has continued to retest the $41.75 to $42.00 resistance level over the past 30+ days. My research team believes this represents a very clear indication that further failure to advance above this level will prompt a moderate price decline – likely breaking below the $36.00 ppb price level.

We believe the completed Pennant/Flag Apex, highlighted in Light Green on the Crude Oil Futures chart below, represents a technical pattern suggesting a new price trend is pending.  The recent sideways price action, highlighted by the Gold Rectangle on this chart, shows the range of price recently that is currently presenting a very clear support level (near $36) and a very clear resistance level (near $42).

Our research team believes the downside potential in Crude Oil outweighs the upside price potential at this time because of two primary factors; continued COVID-19 cases and the likelihood that continued economic restrictions will stay in place and the pending change in the seasons (Winter is coming).  We believe these two factors will lead to lower demand for Crude Oil over the next 3+ months which could send Oil prices tumbling lower.

Currently, Our research team is watching Crude Oil for any price breakdown below $37 as a signal that downward price pressure has prompted a price move below the MIDPOINT of the Gold Rectangle sideways price range.  We believe when the price of Crude Oil breaks below the Midpoint of this range, there is a much stronger potential for a breakdown move below the $36 price level.  Of course, we would have to have technical confirmation of this breakdown in trend from other indicators, but as long as Crude Oil price stays above $38.25 the bias of price within the range is still Bullish in nature.

This may become a very good trading signal in the next few days or weeks ahead.  Traders should keep Crude Oil on their watch lists as this technical pattern plays out.

As a technical analyst and trader since 1997, I have been through a few bull/bear market cycles in stocks and commodities. I believe I have a good pulse on the market and timing key turning points for investing and short-term swing traders.  If you want to learn how to become a better trader and investor, visit www.TheTechnicalTraders.com to learn how we can help you make money with our swing and investing signals.
