Crude Oil Price Trend Is Strong

Bookmark and Share

Crude Oil Futures--- Crude oil futures are slightly lower in today's trade down about $0.12 currently trading at 57.23 a barrel breaking a 3 day winning streak as I've been recommending a bullish position from around the 53.15 level and if you took the trade the stop loss stands at 51.91 as the chart structure is terrible at the present time to due the fact that prices have run up rather dramatically over the last several trading sessions.

The chart structure will start to improve on a daily basis therefore the monetary risk will be lowered which is always a good thing to see in my opinion as prices are trading far above their 20 and 100 day moving average as this trend is very strong and is starting to follow the coattails of the U.S stock market which hit another all-time high in today's trade.

The main reason why crude oil prices continue to move higher & the entire energy sector including unleaded gasoline and heating oil is strong global demand for these products as I think that is going to continue as worldwide economies continue to improve on a monthly basis especially here in the United States as we at a 17 year low in unemployment. The next major level of resistance in oil prices is around the $59 level & if that is broken like I've written about in many previous blogs as I think we can crack the $60 level here in the coming weeks ahead so stay long as who knows how high prices can actually go. TREND: HIGHER CHART STRUCTURE: POOR VOLATILITY: INCREASING
