We are getting late in this larger intermediate cycle in oil . Due to my cycle count we are going to have a correction and an intermediate cycle low in the first 2 weeks of August. It will be a great bottom a perfect buying opportunity for the rest of the year.
I know most of you would like to catch every move in oil so I'm trying to predict what we can wait in July.
What is almost 100% sure that we are having a bottom (intermediate correction box on the picture) between 1st Aug to 15th Aug. This bottom will be between the 200 and the Saudi beartrap bottom. The Saudi bottom is a very important low, I think that will be an ultimate low for the next decade so powers will fight to protect that with tooth and nails.
The 2 options for July is set by green and red .
1. (red) we will be in a range for the next 2 weeks not breaking the 51$ level and in the middle of July we start to head down into the intermediate correction box.(40% chance)
2. (green) We break the 51$ level next week , pop up to 55-60$ and we start to head down into the intermediate correction box in a steeper decline. (60% chance) The indicators , the lower consolidating are supporting this scenario.
You know that I'm in the "S&P long camp " now . If stocks are breaking to new highs - and I think they will - the euphoria will pull up the oil prices to new highs as the oil related shares will rally as well..
So if you go long now you have to be prepared for an intermediate correction down to 37$ .
If you go short be ready for a pop up to 55-60 during the next 2 weeks. If someone is risking only the 10-20% margin I think a short play will be profitable in 1.5 months from now just have some margin to survive the pop up to 55-60 if there will be. The young usually kicks the shorts one more time before finishes the first stage of the market.
My plan is to go short at the end of next week or the week after that at 51$ or higher when we will be quite late in the cycle
It looks like a perfect bull flag.
I do agree with your fall in price and have marked my possible target low and this going to surprise most traders as you said , my low target is a calculated point of my own discovered Harmonic Pattern .
