We’ve had a nice start to the week with two take profits on the table. For the moment I’m looking to trade a very nice setup on Crude Oil. 

Sell-off In Crude Oil

The Crude Oil had a great sell-off on Friday in response to the stronger Dollar. As we know, there’s a negative correlation between the Crude Oil and US dollar. This means the stronger Dollar makes the Crude Oil expensive for the other countries. Hence, reducing demand for the commodity.

At the moment, the Crude Oil is holding above a solid support extended by a double bottom pattern at $64.50. The technical side of the market is taking a bullish turn. On the 4-hour chart below, the bullish trendline is also underpinning the commodity above $64.55.
