WTI OIL at a critical make or break point

TVC:USOIL   CFDs on WTI Crude Oil
The WTI Crude Oil ( USOIL ) has been trading within a structured Channel Down pattern since the March 08 market High, following the immense growth after the COVID 2020 demand crisis. We have covered the Higher Lows zones since the November 02 2020 Low (green circle) and the March 23 2021 Low (blue circle) extensively over the past months on the higher time-frames, which is where Oil is trading at the moment.

Basically the price is at the bottom of both the Channel Down and the Higher Lows zone since Nov 02 2020 2021. The bearish sentiment got stronger when the price got rejected exactly on the 1D MA50 (blue trend-line) on August 30 and turned even worse on September 02 when the 1D MA50 crossed below the 1D MA200 (orange trend-line) to form the bearish pattern of the Death Cross. This is the first time we see this formation since February 25 2020!!

This was a huge bearish sign at the past as it preceded the COVID crash. As long as the Nov 2020 Higher Lows Zone (dotted lines) hold, the Death Cross effect may be postponed for the short-term but only if the 1D MA50 breaks. A first sign towards that bullish break-out may be the Bullish Divergence on the 8H MACD , which is on Higher Lows while Oil has been on Lower Lows since June 22. Also the 8H MACD resembles the July 09 - August 19 2021 fractal , which rebounded on the March 23 2021 zone. Technically the Channel Down should make a new Lower High within 105.00 - 110.00.

A break below the Channel Down though, should finally test the March 23 2021 Higher Lows zone (dashed lines) and at this point under the current fundamentals seems like the most likely scenario. Even if we do get that rebound on the short-term, it would be much safer to be positioned systematically with sells on the rallies, as the Death Cross indicates that the long-term trend is gradually turning bearish .
