WTI Oil 4-Hour Chart

Technical Wave: Three wave ABC Down structure has completed. A break below 76.50 could create a short five-wave play that targets 72.50

Buy Support: Bullish traders will be looking to buy the short reversals to 79.90, which then target 82.00 and 84.50

Sell Resistance: Bearish traders will be looking to sell long tests of resistance between 85.40, which then target 81.50 and 79.70

Overall: Oil trade has become strongly correlated to moves on the S&P 500, which is creating volatile intra-day oil trading conditions

This Week: The pattern of selling resistance is likely to continue if equity markets continue to show weakness. Traders need to accept that news-headline related moves are dominating technical potential. The trend and outlook is mixed, with the path of least resistance likely to continue to be lower. The intra-day trading range is extreme and signals massive volatility is a constant threat.
