Will Crude Oil be the New Gold Standard in 2012?

Crude oil is on the move. Tensions, technicals and Trade Triangles are propelling crude oil higher!

February crude oil closed higher on Tuesday as it extended the rally off December's low. The high range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Wednesday. Stochastics and the RSI remain neutral to bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near term.

If February extends the rally off December's low, November's high crossing at 103.28 is the next upside target. Closes below the 20 day moving average crossing at 98.70 would signal that a short term top has been posted.

First resistance is November's high crossing at 103.28. Second resistance is the May 2011 high crossing at 105.34. First support is the 20 day moving average crossing at 98.70. Second support is the 38% retracement level of the October-November rally crossing at 92.73.

With a Chart Analysis Score of +100, this market is in a strong upward trend. The crude oil market has resistance starting at $102 up to the $103 level. Long and intermediate term traders should be long this market with appropriate money management stops.

Monthly Trade Triangles for long term trends is bullish. Weekly Trade Triangles for intermediate term trends is bullish. And daily Trade Triangles for short term trends are bullish.
