Crude Oil Forecast: WTI Pullback Tests Major Support

By Dean Rogers

Last week’s break higher out of the bullish pennant was positive and the move up extended to meet the 0.618 projection of the wave $38.51 – $50.04 – 43.71. However the move stalled there, formed a bearish evening star and blow-off high, and then proceeded to test $46.4, the 62 percent retracement of the move up from $43.71.

The market is telling us that it needs more time to sort itself out as it awaits more data. We have stated that the move up would likely be a grind higher, and so far that has been the case.

For now, another trading range will likely form between $46.4 and $50.0. Look for resistance at $47.4 and $48.2.

Should prices fall below the $43.71 swing low the outlook will shift back to negative for the longer-term.
