Crude Oil Bulls "Cling" to Bullish Trade Triangles

Crude oil closed lower due to profit taking on Thursday as it consolidates some of the rally off December's low. The low range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Friday. Stochastics and the RSI are overbought but remain bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near term.

If February extends the rally off December's low, the 75% retracement level of the 2011 decline crossing at 104.84 is the next upside target. Closes below the 20 day moving average crossing at 98.84 would signal that a short term top has been posted.

First resistance is Wednesday's high crossing at 103.74. Second resistance is the 75% retracement level of the 2011 decline crossing at 104.84. First support is the 10 day moving average crossing at 100.55. Second support is the 20 day moving average crossing at 98.84.

Crude oils chart Analysis Score of +90 this market remains very much in a strong upward trend, despite today’s pullback. The crude oil market has resistance starting at $104 up to the $105 level. Long and intermediate term traders should be long this market with appropriate money management stops. Monthly, weekly and daily Trade Triangles all remain bullish.
