WTI Crude Oil Outlook-November 10, 2017

No doubt about it, it has been a pivotal week for WTI crude oil. After a Monday bull run extending November’s gains, price has become compressed. The Tuesday/Wednesday inventory cycle did little to stimulate traders and investors. It looks as though indecision is dominating market sentiment.

 

December WTI Crude Oil-Technical Outlook

The macro topside resistance levels outlined earlier this week are proving valid. Price has found an intermediate top slightly above the macro 38% retracement.

While my bias is still technically bullish, this market is showing signs of slowing down. However, price is still in position to break higher from here. A few observations for WTI crude:

  • Price is actively trading above the 38% retracement of the current bull run, $56.38. As long as action remains above this level, the uptrend is technically valid.

  • Every trader’s eyes are fixed on the 38% macro level at $57.79 and 2017’s high of $58.44. In the event that the yearly high is taken out, we will see a test of $60.00 directly.

Overview: The current behavior exhibited by WTI crude may be the beginning of a long-term shift in the market dynamic. $60.00 oil is a major psychological level and one that may act as a catalyst for participation.

If we see $60.00 sustained during the North American Winter months, a bull market for the Spring and Summer of 2018 is extremely likely.
