Oil Facing Double Top – Wait for the Signal!

Today, the black crack has been trading unchanged since this morning. It's stuck in a narrow range of $47 – $47.30. Once again, we made a good call in our trade for the crude oil and we managed to capture our share of the volatile product.

Overall, the WTI crude oil has a bullish sentiment which is due to the latest stockpile data. As I mentioned in my previous update, I recommended you make sure to follow the EIA inventories report. According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA) figures, the inventories counted a draw of about 4.73 million barrels following a draw of 7.6 million barrels last week. The draw didn't exceed the previous one, but compared to the API report, it was quite bullish.

Now it's trading right below the double top resistance level of $47.30 and breakage above this level may open further room for buying until $47.85. The double top pattern signifies a high probability of bearish reversals. A bearish reversal is likely as the oil has already entered the overbought zone.

I would like to enter the market now at $47.26 with a minor stop loss of 20 pips and a target of 40 pips. But, it is prudent to wait and monitor the upcoming fundamentals from Eurozone and U.S before taking positions.
