Chart Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT

Commodity Analysis: “Crude is nearing potentially significant resistance from the 61.8% retracement of the 10040-8404 decline at 9415 and trendline that extends off of the 2012 (February and September) highs. This area is reinforced by the 9/21 and 10/10 highs (already reached) and 8/30 low at 9393.” I wrote yesterday that “near term consolidation may compose a triangle, in which case a terminal thrust will complete at higher levels.” The terminal thrust may be underway. A measured objective comes in slightly above 96 but the trendline and long term Fibonacci level could impede gains at this level.

Commodity Trading Strategy: Nothing.

LEVELS: 9000 9150 9268 9477 9533 9719
