ONG: Crude Oil Weekly Technical Outlook For Sunday April 1st

Crude oil dropped to as low as 102.13 last week as correction from 110.55 extended. Deeper fall could be seen initially this week but downside is expected to be contained by 61.8% retracement of 95.44 to 110.55 at 101.21 and bring rebound. Above 108.25 will indicate that such correction is finished and rally from 74.95 should then be resuming for 114.83 key resistance. However, sustained break of 101.21 fibo level will dampen this bullish view and turn focus back to 95.44 support.

In the bigger picture, the medium term up trend from 33.2 shouldn't be completed yet. Rise from 74.95 is indeed tentatively treated as resumption of such rally. Sustained break of 114.83 will target 61.8% projection of 33.2 to 114.83 from 74.95 at 125.40. On the downside, though, break of 95.44 support will indicate that correction pattern from 114.83 is going to extend further with another falling leg to 74.95 and below before completion.

In the long term picture, crude oil is in a long term consolidation pattern from 147.27, with first wave completed at 33.2. The corrective structure of the rise from 33.2 indicates that it's second wave of the consolidation pattern. While it could make another high above 114.83, we'd anticipate strong resistance ahead of 147.24 to bring reversal for the third leg of the consolidation pattern.
