Oil N Gold: Crude Oil Technical Outlook For Wednesday Morning

Crude oil's choppy recovery extends further by taking out 89.00 resistance and reaches as high as 89.21 so far. Intraday bias is back on the upside and further rise could be seen. Focus is now on 89.61 support turned resistance We'll stay bearish as long as this resistance holds and expect reversal soon. Below 82.95 will flip bias back to the downside for 75.71 support first. Break will resume whole decline from 114.83 towards 70 psychological level. However, sustained trading above 89.61 will argue that the near term trend in crude oil might have reversed and will bring stronger rebound towards 100.62 resistance instead.

In the bigger picture, medium term rebound from 33.2 is treated as the second leg of consolidation pattern from 147.24 and should have finished at 114.83 already. Current decline should target next key cluster support at 64.23 (61.8% retracement of 33.2 to 114.83 at 64.38) next. Sustained break will pave the way to retest 33.2 low. However, break of 100.62 resistance will indicate that fall from 114.83 has completed after meeting missing 100% projection target. The corrective structure of such decline in turn argues that rise from 33.2 is still in progress for another high above 114.83.
