Crude oil buyers are finding resistance just below $88 as the commodity is turning down a little. Is this a matter of another pullback before the rally as we have seen since the turn of the year 2024 or the corrective rally that started in December 2023 has closed and the preceding bearish trend between September and December 2023 is about to begin? Large moves often start with small moves. Is a sentiment shift looming on crude oil? In today’s blog post, we will look to analyze crude oil's long and medium-term price action to forecast what we will be expecting next.

On the daily time frame, a long-term bearish correction started in March 2022 when the commodity exchanged for $130.9. This was expected to correct the bullish trend, between April 2020 and March 2022, that saw crude oil ‘rose from the dead’ after being battered by the global Covid lockdowns. This correction has now lasted for over two years. It’s very likely to see the commodity drop back to the pre-covid prices between $64 and $50. Looking at the correction from the prism of the Elliott wave theory, as the daily chart shows, the decline from March 2022 ($130.9) to March 2023 ($64.5) completed a 3-wave. The response from $64.5 to September 2023 ($95) also completed a 3-wave. This suggests that the decline from the $130.9 high could be evolving in a double three (zigzag) pattern. Thus, we labeled them as wave ‘W’-’X’-’Y‘ (circled in blue). While waves ‘W’ and ‘X’ have been completed, wave ‘Y’ is still evolving from September 2023 ($95) and by projection could continue lower to $54.5-$46.8. Another thing to note is that wave ‘Y’ is also evolving into a double three (zigzag) labeled wave (A)-(B)-(C). The current rally from December is wave (B) and is expected to end below $95 before sellers take over for wave (Y) below $67.8 low. 

Wave (B) is completing a double 3 pattern as well. On the H4 time frame, wave Y of (B) could have ended or may rally toward the $90 major level if $87.63 is breached upside. In all of these, picking the top is not advised. To ascertain that wave (B) has ended, we should see an impulse or a sharp 3-wave dip toward 60. Otherwise, small dips will lead to a higher leg toward$ 90.
