Nymex Crude Oil (CL)
While intraday upside momentum in crude oil is not too convincing, further rise is still in favor with 68.16 minor support intact. Break of 73.16 will indicate that fall from 75.0 has completed at 65.05 already. The corrective structure will in turn indicate that medium term rally is still in progress for another high above 75.0 before completion. On the downside, below 68.16 will suggest that rebound from 65.05 has completed and will flip intraday bias back to the downside. Break of 65.05 will affirm the original bearish view that crude oil has topped out at 75.0 already and will bring fall resumption towards 58.32 key support next.
In the bigger picture, the lack of follow through selling so far dampens the bearish view that crude oil’s medium term rise from 33.2 has completed at 75.0. Nevertheless, risk remains on the downside as long as 73.16 resistance holds. A break below 65.05 support will solidify the case the crude oil has topped out in medium term again. In such case, deeper fall should be seen to test on 58.32 cluster support (38.2% retracement of 33.2 to 75.0 at 59.03) first and break will target a retest of 33.2 low. However, a break of 75.0 will indicate that rise from 33.2 has resumed for 76.77/90.24 fibo resistance zone (38.2% and 50% retracement of 147.27 to 33.2) instead.
