Brent Crude Oil - ready to go (adapted from the article)

Daily price is located near and above Senkou Span line which is the virtual border between the primary bearish and the primary bullish trend on the chart. The price is moving along the upper border of Ichimoku cloud to be ready for bearish reversal or to the bullish trend to be resumed.

  • "Crude oil prices continue to trade off of yearly highs, but have failed to breakout significantly for the 2017 trading year. As such, traders continue to wait for a market catalyst to cause the commodity to breach key values of either support or resistance. Key news for this week includes the release of US employment data this Friday. Expectations for US NFP (Feb) is set at +190k, while the US Unemployment Rate is set to be released at 4.7%."
  • "Technically the price of crude oil remains in an ongoing daily trading range, which is depicted below. Current daily resistance remains located at the January 3rd 2017 peak at $55.67. Alternatively, crude oil prices remain supported above the January 10th low at $51.34. As prices continue to ping between these values, traders may continue to reference these points for a potential market breakout."

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for Crude Oil (based on the article)


Crude Oil - "The EIA figures inevitably prompted worries about the balance between supply and demand as US shale extraction capacity grows. With a lower breakeven price than many other sources of oil, fears that US output will flood the markets sent them into a spin, along with energy stocks and the currencies of oil-producing countries like Norway, Russia and Canada."

Brent Crude Oil - daily bearish with 50.23 support level (based on the article)

Daily price broke Ichimoku cloud to below for the reversal from the ranging bullish to the primary bearish market condition. The price is testing support level at 51.12 and 50.23 to below for the bearish trend to be continuing, otherwise - ranging.


  • "Before Crude Oil broke down and traded below the 200-DMA ($48.65 as of 3/15/17), Oil and Gas Energy & Exploration stocks had broken down and appear to be leading Oil, so it continues to be worth watching. The rolling 20-day correlation for Crude Oil forward contract and the S&P Oil Producer Index is +.598 as of March 15, which is significant."
  • "The price of Crude Oil recently traded below the 200-DMA with RSI(5) registering a bearish extreme. If the price pops higher as it did in April, August, and November of last year, the Bulls may feel as though they’ve dodged a bullet. However, the Crude Oil market doesn’t have the fundamental support that other commodity sectors like base metals have, which could lead to an eventual breakdown toward the November low of $43.75/42.25. "
  • "While such a breakdown would hurt, price holding above the November low could indicate a longer-term consolidation lasting much of the year, which is when larger-range Fibonacci Retracement is best used. Either an immediate move back above the 200-DMA or hold of the November low would keep a neutral market still anticipating an eventual move back toward the upper $50/bbl region."

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for Brent Crude Oil (based on the article)


Brent Crude Oil"The recent drop in price could be due to hedge funds getting out of the market reducing their extreme long positions relative to institutional hedges. Given the large buying volume possibly exiting the market, it’s fair to ask what would cause them to re-enter the market? Many are counting on hopes of rising demand and an OPEC-cut extension, but it may require a larger shift in the supply-demand imbalance despite OPEC’s recent efforts as the average US Crude Stockpiles have gained steadily due to Shale production. Hedge funds are likely to require much lower prices before accumulation begins again or a shock higher in Bullish Momentum, which has currently vanished."

Crude Oil and the correlation in trading: Crude Oil Pitfalls (based on the article)


Daily price is on secondary correction which was started in the beginning of March this year: price broke key support levels to below for 200-day SMA value at 50.8 to be testing to below for the daily bearish reversal. On the monthly basis - the price dropped by 8.06% to below (monthly) which is indicating the high volatility for example. 

  • "Crude oil is very, very volatile, much more volatile than Forex currency pairs. For this reason, most brokers enforce a considerably lower maximum true leverage on crude oil trades compared to Forex currency pairs. Even though brokers and regulators are doing a little something to try to save you from blowing up, you still have a lot of work to do because the minimum position size you can take in crude oil is usually much larger than in a Forex currency pair too."
  • "The next issue is the high volatility of crude oil. Over an average week between 2001 and 2014, the price ranged by 7.28%. Finally, in long-term trades, crude oil often carries higher overnight financing charges than the Canadian dollar."

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for Crude Oil (based on the article)


Crude Oil"On Friday, we got word from Baker Hughes International that the U.S. Oil Rig Count Report had risen 21 rigs to 652 active rigs. This number is over double the number of active rigs from last summer at around 330. As you would expect, the majority of rigs being reinitiated are in the cheaper to produce shale regions."
