Technical Analysis – WTI futures plunge to new 2-month low

Posted on September 8, 2020 at 9:13 am GMT

Since its deep fall towards a two-month low of 38.15 earlier today, WTI crude oil futures have been trading within a descending movement after the pullback from 43.77. The technical picture supports a bearish structure in the short-term timeframe.   Looking at momentum indicators, the RSI is holding in the oversold zone with weak momentum, while the stochastic oscillator posted a bearish crossover within its %K and %D lines and is moving lower towards the 20 line.

Technical Analysis – WTI oil futures heal after slump, trend signals turn reddish

Posted on September 4, 2020 at 10:38 am GMT

WTI oil futures for October delivery are healing after crashing below the 200-period simple moving average (SMA) on the four-hour chart and to a one-month low of 40.21 on Thursday. While the fast Stochastics have yet to enter the overbought territory, suggesting that there is some room for improvement in the near-term, the 20- and the 200-period SMAs have just completed a bearish cross for the first time since January, giving a negative warning about the strength of the market’s upward pattern.

Technical Analysis – WTI futures develop with weak momentum near 5-month high

Posted on August 20, 2020 at 7:16 am GMT

WTI crude oil is moving sideways in the short-term, in a slightly bullish structure beneath the five-month high of 43.52. The 20- and 40-day simple moving averages (SMAs) are acting as strong support for the bears; however, the MACD oscillator is indicating a negative divergence in the market, signaling a possible bearish retracement. A successful climb above the five-month high of 43.52 could challenge the 48.80 resistance, registered on March 3. Even higher, the 54.62 barrier taken from the peak [..]

Posted on August 18, 2020 at 12:46 pm GMT

WTI crude oil futures have found significant resistance at the 42.90 barrier over the last couple of weeks. The technical indicators are showing mixed signals as the RSI is pointing slightly down, while the MACD completed a bullish crossover with its trigger line above the zero line.

Posted on July 22, 2020 at 12:18 pm GMT

WTI futures are advancing towards a fresh 19-week high of 42.27 today, experiencing a new bullish rally after the neutral mode of the previous sessions. The RSI is extending its upside move towards the overbought territory, while the MACD is strengthening its upside momentum above its trigger and zero line in the 4-hour chart. If prices continue to head higher, resistance should come from the 43.60 level, taken from the inside swing low on March 2 ahead of the 200-period [..]

From the technical viewpoint, the RSI indicator is approaching the 70 level with weak momentum, while the stochastic [..]


Oil drowns in a flood of supply, no lifejacket for now – Special Report

Posted on April 24, 2020 at 12:46 pm GMT

Oil prices traded negative for the first time ever this week, as physical space to store the liquid has almost run out amidst an oversupply of epic proportions. In the near term, there’s little that can save oil prices, and we might even see a repeat of the oil-crash movie in mid-May as storage space runs out entirely. That said, if and when storage room runs out, that could also be the point of ‘peak oversupply’ and perhaps the bottom [..]
