WTI Crude Oil Weekly Technical Analysis

The West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil market fell rather significantly during the course of the trading week, to reach out to the 50-Week EMA. The 50-Week EMA is an indicator that a lot of people will be paying attention to, and we are near the $81 level, an area that is significant support that extends down to the $80 level.

Crude oil has been pulling back for a minute now, and it does suggest that we are trying to find value underneath. If we can turn around and take out the $82.50 level, then the market is likely to go higher, perhaps reaching the $90 level after that. If we do break down below the $80 level, it opens up a move down to the 200-Week EMA near the $75 level.

Brent Crude Oil Weekly Technical Analysis

Brent also fell during the course of the week, as we are threatening the $85 level, and of course the 50-Week EMA indicator right there as well. If we were to break down below there, then it opens up a move to the $83 level, and then after that it opens up the trap door to much lower prices, perhaps reaching down to the 200-Week EMA.

On the other hand, if we were to turn around and show signs of strength again, then I think the market could go look into the $90 level, and if the conflict in the Middle East gets worse than we have seen, that certainly would be like rocket fuel for this market. At this point, I think we’ve got a situation where you are just hanging around and trying to sort out where we are going next in a market that is trying to carve out its next trading range.
