OIL

Oil prices are expected to find support as the decline has pushed prices near 76,4% retracement, prices have touched the lower boundaries of the downward sloping channel and the area of the previous wave 2 consolidation area. Support is strong between 91 and 95. Oil has made a low at 93 and unless prices break above 95, there is no good chance for a trend reversal.

Both Ichimoku cloud support and the upward sloping trend line in the weekly chart provide support for the longer term pattern of higher highs and higher lows, supporting our view that  a trend reversal could be near. For more help trading OIL, become a subscriber today.
