is approaching the neckline of a potential inverse head and shoulders
pattern. If this pattern plays out, it suggest much higher prices for crude. When you consider that the Greenback has been mildly strong lately AND crude has advanced
at the same time, this suggests some bullish
undertones building below the surface.
The Elliott Wave
picture looks like prices are building towards a battle near the neckline. Equal wave measurements appear near 52.60 (proposed C = proposed A).
Bottom line, the price behavior near 52.60-52.90 will set the tone for the near term trend.
