Crude Oil Closes The Week in Overbought Mode
The crude oil market continues to mirror the action in the equity markets. The highs seen on Wednesday in the December contract at $89.69 a barrel remains to be taken out if this market is going to move higher. With mixed Trade Triangles and a Chart Analysis Score of +55, there is no clear cut direction for this market at the moment.
Crude oil is very overbought on the Williams % R indicator. We would not rule out a pullback to the $80 a barrel level, which would represent a 61.8% Fibonacci retracement. Our long term Trade Triangle continues to be negative and we expect it will once again dictate the tone of this market. Intermediate term traders should be on the sidelines and long term traders should continue to be short the crude oil market.
