WTI and Brent Crude Oil charts: an update

WTI Crude chart

WTI Crude_Nov2315

The daily bar chart pattern of WTI Crude oil dropped to a low of 40 on Nov 16, but formed a ‘reversal day’ pattern (lower low, higher close) and bounced up a bit.

However, oil’s price failed to overcome resistance from its falling 20 day EMA, and closed below all three EMAs in a bear market.

Daily technical indicators are in bearish zones, but showing faint signs of upward momentum. Strong volumes on two recent up-days is another bullish sign.

Another attempt at a rally may be in progress – thanks to the continued turmoil in the Middle East. A glut in global supply is likely to play spoil sport.

On longer term weekly chart (not shown), oil’s price is trading well below its three weekly EMAs in a long-term bear market. Weekly technical indicators are in bearish zones.
