Crude Oil Weekly Technical Outlook

Crude oil's break of 79.38 resistance indicates that whole rebound from 64.23 is still in progress and has resumed. Further rise will be expected as long as 76.16 support holds towards 80.53 resistance (61.8% projection of 64.23 to 79.37 from 71.09 at 80.48). On the downside, below 76.16 will flip intraday bias back to the downside for 71.09 support. Break there will indicate that rebound from 64.23 is completed.

In the bigger picture, while rise from 64.23 is still in progress, there is no change in the view that it's a correction to fall from 87.15 only. Hence, even in case of further rally, we'd expect strong resistance below 87.15 high and bring reversal. On the downside, break of 71.09 will be the first signal that whole fall from 87.15 is resuming for another low below 64.23 towards 50% retracement of 33.2 to 87.15 at 60.18

In the long term picture, current development suggests that rebound from 33.2 is finished at 87.15, inside 76.77/90.24 fibo resistance zone as expected. Our view is that fall from 87.15 would develop into the third falling leg of the whole correction from 147.27 and hence, we'd anticipate an eventual break of 33.2 low in the long term as such correction extends.....Nymex Crude Oil Continuous Contract 4 Hours Chart
