Oil - A SLIPPERY CUSTOMER STILL IN BEARISH CYCLE

FX:USOIL   Crude Oil (WTI)
Due to limit in size of comment I will split this in 2 section (apologies)

There is much speculation about where oil             is headed with some suggestion drop to $20 or lower. Ignoring the Intra-Day charts, variety of charts has already been published here on TV with bullish targets 60 -75 and downside target from 30 - 20. One of the chart suggest that from 2008 high we could have AB=CD move, if the author is suggesting 100% relationship that would have the oil             price sub $0 which is not realistic. I have been sharing my view in Forex chat with others as well as at my chatroom at https://www.tradingview.com/chat/#E4bnOJSWcO1zDjBG . However, so many are asking me about my view on oil             , therefore, I feel it is time to publish a chart.

NOTE: whilst many are looking for relatively short term view over next few days to weeks, I feel it is not possible to put price action over such period in to context of overall larger degree cycle.

Whilst publishing a daily chart to meet the need of most traders here, I will emphasise larger degree cycle which is near impossible to anticipate and could prove completely wrong, nevertheless, it is still necessary to consider and see how future price either confirms or proves it wrong. My attempt to extrapolate such anticipation of price action over longer term is purely based on my interpretation of Elliott Waves with full understanding that this will not be for all and many would dispute the validity. Hopefully those who do feel they have alternative views and reasoning, then they will be gracious enough to share their charts with details rather than just being rude and abusive.

BACK GROUND: (Please see Monthly & Weekly Charts below)
Since July 2008, all time high Oil             has entered a larger degree bearish cycle with the initial impulsive 5 wave decline to form Feb 2009 low. Based on Elliott Wave Principle, we would have expected an "abc zigzag" up as retracement before next leg down. However we have a zizgag but not an "abc", rather it is wxy resulting in retracement high in April             2011. Since then we appear to have another "wxy" and are progressing in larger wave C of Y.

If this interpretation is correct then we either have flat correction suggesting that once completed, we could have strong 5 wave impulsive move that could retest April             2011 High or continue to get wxy zigzag and form what is called 3-3-3-3-3 contracting triangle. With OPEC producers unwilling to make drastic cut to future oil             production, I feel that we are more likely to develop a triangle over several years. Similarly 2008 high was in my view either a wave 3 high or more likely a wave 5 high of a much larger degree that lasted several decades, hence the overall correction with final low to forms correspondingly over a much larger time period. Historically oil             has declined several times in the magnitude of 78% - 80% retracement of its bullish move, therefore it will be nothing new on this occasion, if it does again.

Turning To Current Price Action:
That said the recent decline I feel started in Aug 2013 high was wave "b", and are progressing in wave "c", which should have an impulsive 5 waves decline and could be in final stage of wave 3, namely minor wave "v" of 3. If correct we should see potential intermediate bottom around 40 as round number to complete wave 3. Hence there will be several opportunities to trade both bullish and bearish swings as we see this progresses complete.

Hi, thank you for sharing your chart and your comments. From EW perceptive I see more downside though the counts are not entirely clear. Could retest the recent low or go on to choppy side ways congestion.

To be honest with you I don't look much into the future since there are too many variables that could change the direction over time. But at the moment it looks bearish for a short term. Although current fundamentals should push price higher.

I agree. Based on my DXY chart, USD still have room to the upside in it's final leg for potential completion that could suggest weakness for oil. So agree with your bearish outlook.
