Beginning with the 4-hour chart, we can see the breakage of the symmetric triangle pattern. This will be help crude traders determine the trend. The symmetric triangle indicates indecision among investors, perhaps due to the lack of relevant fundamentals.

The prices have moved near the bullish trend line of the symmetric triangle pattern which is extending resistance at $47.50. The momentum indicators, RSI and Stochastic are trading near 97, in a massively overbought region, signaling a reversal in the crude oil prices.

The 50- periods EMA is supporting the oil at $47 (4H). This means the oil has room to drop until $47 to test the EMA.

I'm taking a quick sell below $47.35 with a stop above 47.55 (20 pips) and a take profit at $47. Today, the market will mostly trade the technicals due to the absence of any major fundamentals.
