WTICOUSD: Ranging at the 200-Week SMA

My overall sentiment for Oil remains Bearish, though my midterm sentiment has been Bullish, as I think WTICOUSD needs to come back up to revisit some of the highs above 100 and face one last rejection from those levels before I will be fully convinced of oil making significantly lower lows.

For the time being, Oil has dumped below last week's range but is now sitting at the 200-week SMA and at the old 50% retrace which could be where this Bearish Shark starts to act as a Bullish 5-0 which would demand an attempt of a Higher High. I think that it could attempt to hold out here as the RSI is oversold and the MACD is printing potential Hidden Bullish Divergence. My first target for oil, if this level holds is up, is at around $80, then $100, then $114, then $140-155. I will be looking for signs of weakness to potentially take profits at all of those levels on the way up. In the meantime, I will look at Oil Related Stocks: BP, BPT, DVN, IMPP and a few more. The XLE and XOP Exchange Traded Funds may provide a more general way to get exposure.
