Crude Oil Bulls Can't Seem to Take Advantage of Price Action Above $100

Crude oil closed down $0.42 a barrel at $98.35 today. Prices closed nearer the session low today and scored a bearish “outside day” down on the daily bar chart. Prices were pressured by a firmer U.S. dollar index today. Crude oil bulls have the overall near term technical advantage. However, the going does get tough for the bulls once prices move above the key $100.00 level.

Gold futures closed up $4.00 an ounce at $1,783.30 today. Prices closed near mid range today, hit a fresh seven week high and closed at a bullish monthly high close. Gold bulls still have the solid overall near term technical advantage and still have upside near term technical momentum. A steep four week old uptrend is in place on the daily bar chart.

Natural gas closed down 20.9 cents at $2.504 today. Prices closed nearer the session low today. Bulls faded today. Bears have the overall near term technical advantage. The next upside price breakout objective for the bulls is closing prices above major psychological resistance at $3.00.
