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.
