CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Broke upward channel structure, heading lower.
  • Support dating to 2011 could soon come into play.

To start the month WTI crude oil snapped the upward channel dating to the August low, and then tested the underside parallel of the pattern to start the week. The failure to recapture the channel and new highs has oil falling back lower. Snapping channel structures doesn’t in of itself mean a trend change, but can signify that a corrective period is underway.

Earlier in the week I touched on oil in a macro tech video and said we should continue to respect the upward trend. This still holds true on an intermediate-term scale, but the risk of a seeing a decline to lower levels is quickly rising with momentum fierce off the weekly high.

Watch for signs that the monthly low at 78.25 wants to hold, it could put in a floor for an extended period of range activity that builds a base for a rally later on. It would be a healthy development in the bull market.

If the monthly low breaks there is strong support not far below that threshold to watch for signs of stabilization. Going back as far as 2011 the area right around 77 has been an important one as both support and resistance. The most recent test as resistance was in July before oil underwent an extended correction.

A test and reversal off this macro level could offer up would-be longs an opportunity to join the trend higher, that also provides a backstop for stop placement. A slice through the level would warrant caution from the long side and indicate that oil is undergoing another extended correction.

    • If you've tried using Ethereum, you know it can get slow and expensive. Think of Starknet as a helper that makes everything faster and cheaper. It does this by taking a bunch of transactions, squishing them into one, and then processing that one. This means more transactions can happen at once without clogging up the system. For people making apps on the blockchain (they call these dApps), Starknet is like a dream come true because it lets their apps handle a lot more users without slowing down. It also gives them the freedom to make their apps work just how they want, making things better for users. When it comes to making money, Starknet charges fees to use its network and lets people 'stake' their coins – that's like putting your money in a savings account that helps the network run, and you get a little reward for that. So, what do you think about Starknet? It's all about helping Ethereum handle more action without any hassle. Could be a big deal for how we use digital money, right?

    • Dear @Omegaguy123, Thank you for reaching out to us! Please be aware that the stock is no longer available on leveraged accounts (spread bet and CFD); it is only offered on non-leveraged accounts (share dealing). Currently, it is on 'closings only' on leveraged accounts, which means you can only close existing positions.
