Crude Oil under pressure
- WTI crude oil has started to weaken in earnest following its recent erosion of the 102.00 support. The slide lower has eroded the 50% retracement and 200 day ma at 98.92/98.58. Just below here we encounter the 96.22 55 week ma – which will essentially bring prices back to the middle of the range at circa 77.50-110.00 which has dominated for the past 2 years. This in turn protects the 200 week ma at 91.45.
- Provided that any rebounds remain capped by the downtrend and 55 day ma at 103.79/104.91, we will maintain a negative bias.
- Currently the Elliott wave count on the daily chart is suggesting that rallies will terminate around the downtrend and this current sell off will reach sub 90.00.
