ONG: Crude Oil Weekly Technical Outlook For Sunday August 5th

We like to drop in on the staff at Oil N'Gold to see where they think crude oil is headed. And they are looking neutral at this point.....

Crude oil rebounded strongly late last week but upside is still limited below 92.94 short term top. Initial bias remains neutral and more consolidation cannot be ruled out. But after all, even in case of another decline, near term outlook remains bullish as long as 83.65 support holds. As noted before, decline from 110.55 should have finished at 77.28 already. Current rebound from there should extend and break of 92.94 will target 61.8% retracement at 97.84 and above.

In the bigger picture, price actions from 114.84 are viewed as a three wave consolidation pattern with fall from 110.55 as the third leg. Such decline could have finished earlier than we expected at 77.28. Sustained trading above 90 psychological level will bring stronger rally towards 114.83 resistance level. And break there will resumption whole up trend from 33.2. On the downside, another fall cannot be ruled out yet. But even in that case, strong support should be seen below 74.95 and above 61.8% retracement of 33.20 to 114.83 at 64.38 and bring another medium term rise.

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.
