A Skilled Crude Dealer’s View on Crude
As Tracy Shuchart famous on the DailyFX Podcast, a whole lot of the commodity sector is receiving favorable fund movement after a disastrous This autumn along with brief protecting per the ICE Brent positioning report with Open Curiosity choosing up after shrinking a lot earlier than the huge finish of 12 months drop, which makes for a pretty alternative in a market poised to do properly if international development additionally picks up. One cause why development may choose up is decision of a US-China commerce deal because the March 1 date approaches.
Including Up The Momentum Elements for Crude Oil
February opened the month with a drop from ~$56/bbl to $51.50/bbl or roughly 1/three of the December 24 to February four excessive. Nonetheless, after holding $51/bbl, crude has taken off for once more 12% acquire which may be cementing bullish momentum.
As you’ll see on the chart, three issues have my consideration:
The lagging line on Ichimoku is breaking above the cloud, a transparent bullish momentum indicator
The Fibonacci extension reveals a goal of ~$59-$64/bbl, which seems favorable after the shallow correction talked about above was adopted by such sturdy features
The worth moved above the 100-DMA (not proven on the chart above) however might sign bullish momentum which will carry the worth ahead to the 200-DMA close to the 12-month common at $63.45.
What’s the Threat to my Bullish Thesis?
Tracy stated it greatest in our dialog on the DailyFX podcast this week, “crude merchants love volatility, oil producing international locations don’t.” Merchants ought to proceed to look at provide proceed to look at the bullish story, or at the least, restricted draw back.
The thesis that value might proceed to $59-$64 would want additional bullish momentum as evidenced by the lagging line on Ichimoku remaining above the day by day cloud, and value holding above the 26-median line (at the moment at $54.45/bbl.). That places the view in danger. A break under the February low of $51.53/bbl strikes me from bullish to impartial.
