Crude Oil Forecast: WTI Technical Failure Leads to Bearish Outlook

By Dean Rogers

December WTI’s wave $39.22 – 50.89 – 44.31, which met its 0.618 projection at $51.42, has been taken out by the $43.64 swing low. Consequently a technical failure of the move up has taken place and odds have shifted in favor of a continued decline. Look for $43.0 tomorrow and very likely $42.5 over the next few days. A close below $42.5 would confirm the negative outlook and technical failure. There is an outside chance that the support trend line will hold. Look for resistance at $45.4 and $46.5.
