WTI Crude Oil
The West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil market initially fell during the trading session on Friday but turned around to show signs of strength again. The gap is sitting just above here and therefore it is likely that technical traders will trying to find a reason to push into this area. Filling the gap is a common trade, and clearly the fact that we continue to find buyers on dips suggests that we are going to eventually find the momentum necessary. The top of the gap is near $41, and I think that is about as far as this market can go.

Brent looks similar, but it has not reached the exact bottom of the gap, so it may have a little bit more of a fight ahead of it. Ultimately though, I do think that the market will make a decision and try to take off to the upside. I like buying dips, lease for the short term and until we get some type of major change in attitude what I consider shorting. Going into the weekend, it looks like we are still trying to find plenty of buyers to finally push higher, but ultimately this is a lot of back and forth, simply waiting for the next catalyst to get things going. I do believe that the 50 day EMA comes into play in both of these markets, at least for dynamic support. Expect volatility, so keep your position size relatively small until we get some type of clarity in these markets.
