NY Harbor ULSD May futures fell to 187.35 on Monday, but the decline is corrective and forms an intraday bullish pennant (not shown). Support at 182.7, the 38 percent retracement from 166.53 should hold, though an extended correction to the 62 percent retracement at 176.5 would not be out of the ordinary at this point. A close over 190.9, the 1.618 projection from 164.9 would confirm the short-term positive tone and call for a split target at 205.0. This is the 2.764 projection from 164.9 and the 1.00 target from the 155.66 low, and is the most likely stalling point.

NY Harbor ULSD futures fell to a new intraday low for the eighth session in a row, but formed a bullish morning star setup and hammer. These are bullish reversal formations, but in this case it is more likely that a subsequent move up will be a correction rather than a reversal. In addition, the decline stalled near the 62 percent retracement of the move up from 154.8 to 197.86, which supports the likelihood of a correction. However, the KasePO and KaseCD show that the decline should ultimately continue. Look for resistance at 178.7 and no higher than 186.0 to hold.

NY Harbor ULSD future’s upward correction extended to 177.7 on Monday. The primary wave 158.9 – 171.7 – 160.5, met its 1.382 projection at 177.7 and is poised to extend to the 1.618 projection of 184.2. This is the decision point for an extended correction and potential recovery. Although it is too early to say that a bottom has been made, a sustained close over 184.2 would open the way for 198.7 and 217.7. A close below 164.3 would indicate the upward correction is complete and call for 153.2 and lower.

The NY Harbor ULSD futures broke lower out of a bearish flag formation on Monday. The break lower was anticipated and then confirmed by KaseX short signals. The decline is now poised to extend to at least 188.9 and then 177.9. The latter is crucial because a close below this would call for 164.1 and 151.9. Initial resistance is the small intraday double top at 199.39. A close over this would open the way for an extended correction to 210.9 and possibly 226.0.

December 2014 NY Harbor ULSD futures have formed a rectangle pattern. A break out of the rectangle will provide a near-term direction.
