Crude Oil Daily Technical Outlook For Friday
Crude oil's recovery was limited below 87.09 resistance and drops sharply since then. With 4 hours MACD crossed below signal line, intraday bias is turned neutral again. Note that consolidation from 87.09 is still in progress and deeper fall to 82.51 or below could be seen. Nevertheless, strong support is expected at 61.8% retracement of 78.56 to 87.09 at 81.82 to conclude the correction and bring rally resumption. Break of 87.09 will target 90 psychological level next.
In the bigger picture, medium term rise from 33.2 is still in progress and could extend further higher. Nevertheless, there is no change in the view that it's the second wave of the whole correction that started in 2008 at 147.27. Hence, we'd continue to expect strong resistance near to 50% retracement of 147.27 to 33.2 at 90.24 to bring reversal. On the downside, below 78.56 support will be the first signal of topping and will turn focus back to 69.50 support for confirmation.....Nymex Crude Oil Continuous Contract 4 Hours Chart.
