Oil rally primed?


Recommended Posts

That Oil rally that I have been tracking gave us a teasing signal last week but no clear breakout and now, with USDCAD rallying post NFP it looks like a retrace down is on the cards but only to set up a stronger rally.  If I am right about USD (see other posts) and USDCAD rally runs out of steam soon then that could all signal Oil will retrace briefly to set up that rally.


2 alternatives:

  1. Rally to daily down trend line then turn back down
  2. Doesn't retrace but just rallies up thru resistance

As they say "Missing fish is always a big one" :)


From July:


"I think its started for Crude at 49 when its broken down the trend line from the bottom. Also, when we consider current economic outlook, brexit etc. I think it will retrace till 44-40-36 before moving up again..."

As you say  the BIG fish got away.  Alas I was away when it all happened but there you are.  For me it is all about managing scenarios, their likelihoods of being right and risk management around placing a trade against any of the scenarios.  So I actively track multiple scenarios on any given market until I get to a decision point.  One such occurred on Oil over the past 3 days and my scenario 1 from my past post was the one that proved correct.  I was set up to enter either and got Short before and after the EIA crude stocks data release yesterday.  The turn happened at the Fib 38% off the 9 June high.  So far so good but where do we go from here?


Again I have 2 scenarios as follows:

  1. Lead is a return towards the lower daily tramline and Fib 50% ($40), which is then another pivotal point (drop thru or rally back up?)
  2. Because the move up to 19 Aug turn can be counted as either an A-B-C or a 1-5 a Wave B could have been established on 2 Aug meaning the current move is a 1-2 and will turn up again forming a higher low vs 2 Aug.  We are at the Fib 50% down as I write, which is also prior support zone.  Fib 62% also a strong possibility.

So the Fib 50% was the turning point on the hourly and now with a fresh higher high scenario 2 must surely be the lead set up right?  Of course there is now another scenario, which is that this move up is an A-B-C retrace, which would indicate a wave C ending point in or around 4700-50 area at a minimum.

So I looked again at that alternative scenario I mentioned yesterday and now I think it is the lead scenario just now.


There is just too much resistance above, which would take a lot of bullish sentiment to break through.  The move up looks like an A-B-C to me with yesterdays rally constituting the bulk of the wave C.  I expect a final push up into the 4750 resistance zone, where there is also a junction of 2 tramline lines offering resistance and the Fib 50% off the previous rally high (Pink A/4).  With Neg Mom Div building on all time frames I am reversing my stance to bearish once more and seeking shorts off a rebound from the Fib 50% area with a target on 4000 initially.


Any thoughts please?

Not too shore, if we could be completing the W4 down to the 61 fib level on oil, however has just rejected the 50% retracement, therefore wait for confirmation of termination of WC. However as you quite rightly pointed out, the tramline on daily has not been kissed yet, therefore probably hold fire for now, although we are getting some neg momentum. Best wait for more confirmation.

So looks like my first instinct that the bear move had come to an end in a Wave B was right.  The down trend cannot be in 1-5 now due to the overlap of wave 1 end.  Therefore an A-B-C ending up between $55-60 seems more likely.


Buy the dips I guess...

Hi Mercury, as you suggest, always best to review your analysis often, as I have found that we some times allow our eyes to see what we want, instead of what we should strictly see, hence why these strict rules in our strategy help us keep out of trouble. I don't know your opinion and I know I have created once again a double zigzag, but it does suggest that this is the case which would support then the analysis. Might also add that the RSI or in your case very similar the stochastic is only approaching oversold, which therefore suggests further that we can presume this a continuation of the previous daily bullish trend.

    • It is genuinely true and safe to say a couple of ways exist in the CryptoSpace for everyone to benefit from and earn.  Some of the best ways of earning in the space is through risk averse opportunities. Bitget always leverage on these frameworks to give users latitude to earn rather than primarily investing. Through its "Flexi savings" you can stake some good amount of USDT to get over 16% APR. This is practically one of the highest in the industry.  Since the formative days of the platform and with how far it has grown, the team is committed to wealth creation for its users. This has been noticeably shown in some of its frameworks aimed at rewarding passively through risk averse methods. The Flexi savings is truly a product to look out for, it is very straightforward to participate in as well.
    • Can't believe I'm asking this after all my 35 years of being alive, but here I am - please give me some nice ideas for an appropriate gift you'd give a new girlfriend after just 2 months of your relationship?  Asking this so as not to "overdo" it or go too far with something that's too intimate or personal or expensive - just something nice, useful, and romantic that doesn't go overboard. Thanks a lot!
    • The long adage “what a man can do, a woman can do even better” might have gained traction in the crypto space. Although most of the top influential people in the industry are men, their female counterparts are exhibiting finesse too; not many beat Gracy Chen in terms of deep-rooted knowledge, skill and her inspiring rise to the top. Since 2014, as a notable TV host, Ms Chen found her interest in the dynamic world of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency deepen through her interactions with some of the industry’s OGs. Her growing passion would soon drive her to invest in various crypto startups, including Bitkeep (now Bitget Wallet). In June 2022, she joined Bitget as its novel Managing Director (MD), and left a positive impact with her excellent managerial ability; contributing her part in Bitget’s success in the fiercely competitive cryptocurrency landscape. Some of her most remarkable achievements include co-leading the strategy that multiplied Bitget’s user base through high-profile partnership with footballing GOAT, Leo Messi, as well as the establishment of a robust global affiliate network. Her expertise, in-depth knowledge, efficiency over the years as Bitget MD have earned her the CEO position, succeeding Sandra Lou, who will be leaving the platform to chase her own business goals. From TV host to Bitget CEO, Gracy Chen’s story is a reminder that if you dream it, you can achieve it. You agree?
