USOIL Look Ahead for week starting 1/12/20

FX:USOIL   CFDs on Crude Oil (WTI)
The future USOIL , symbol CL , is in a Bear Market Rally with price trading above the 50 ema , which is below the 200 ema , which is below the 800 week ema . The 50 week ema is currently slightly up trending, but by and large the long term emas are mostly flat. This implies an accumulation/distribution zone. Price would have to close below the 13 ema at 58.86 on the weekly for the Rally to be considered over. Last week was an ugly long red candle which formed a dark cloud candle pattern, and marking the top of the intermediate cycle time frame c-wave top of the b-wave. The larger cycle period length Elliott Wave implies a rally above 66.58 to complete this primary b-wave.

The Market is in a correction of a Bear Market Rally on the daily, with price below the 13 ema , but above the 50 ema which is above both the 200 and 800 emas, but the 200 ema , at 57.79 still below the 800 ema , at 58.36. Price is testing a long-term trend line zone and just broke below the 9/13/30 emas this last week and is testing the 50ema. A likely down side target for this x-wave sell-off are the 200 and 800 emas. We’re still in an downtrend as long as each day closes below the 9 &13 emas at 60.70.

The Market is in a correction of a Bull Market on the 4 hour, with price below the 9/13/30/50 emas, which are above the 200 ema , at 59.90, which is above the 800 ema at 57.79. Price would have to close back above the 9 & 13 ema , at 59.82 to consider the correction over. The Oil Market is selling off as a result of the succession of US tensions with Iran.

With a likely calm weekend, I’m expecting the oil futures to open in a positive light, but test the lower trend lines and emas, in the early part of the week, then bounce in to the later part of the week to complete wave form patterns. The over-all trend is down on the longer time frames, but there is a feeling that this is the quiet before the storm. Hostilities in the Middle East could unexpectedly show up at any point and cause prices to rocket back up.

This is my USOIL look ahead for my own trading purposes. FUTURES trading involves risk. Feel free to comment, but trade off of this post at your own peril.
