Is Crude Oil Faltering at Key Resistance Area?

So here we are… We’re in the middle of the month, it’s the middle of the week, and the markets are stuck in the middle. Stocks rallied early today, but they look like they are failing now.

Gold rallied again to test the $1,800 an ounce level. It has now fallen back and looks to be on the defensive. Crude oil has also rallied and is now faltering from a key resistance area. Once again bank stocks look to be on the defensive. I’ll also share a chart pattern in the bank stocks with you that does not look good.

Crude oil has once again moved back inside the Donchian trading channel and has two very important Fibonacci retracement levels to contend with. I am looking at $88.32 (50% retracement) which was hit today and $91.28 (61.8% retracement). For the moment these two levels should stop any serious sustained rally. The longer term trend for this commodity is down based on our monthly Trade Triangle technology.

Monthly Trade Triangles for Long Term Trends = Negative
