But mini-panics do happen quite a lot - where price just can't find a footing and sell orders multiply.
Look at the downward pressure on the channel here on USOIL's 4hr chart. Notice the following:
+ price under 36 has no support until the 34.40s
+ that gap was passed through on the climb from Feb 11 on an unlikely pop out of a (so many shorts were playing that - including me - that they fueled that pop through the 35s
+ the LRS-RSI is in a 'up' cycle (white background) and may just pass into a 'down' with a few more ticks, showing the complete lack of buying support since the high wick blowoff black candle in the 39s.
None of this is definitive - price will reveal itself very soon. But I am holding my shorts and won't be shocked with a print in the 34s in the next 12 hours. Then again, that's how counter trend rallies are created .. with fuel provided by guys like me. Trade Safe.
