Oil is still in no man's land, seems to be forming a descending triangle, I see three possible scenarios. At this point oil is best day traded as there seems to be indecision on where this market is headed.
Oil chart doesnt look good for bulls at all, if it closes below 51 (which seems to be the "demand" line) we might see a massive sell off to last year's lows. However, seasonally oil rallies in August 70% of the time (long August 7th to 27th)
It's in "no mans land here" basically with the conflicting signals , probably safer to just daytrade it until we get a...
1) Short correction.
2) Double small impulses
3) During breakdown of the first candle. growth is same size of candle. (TD)
Profit:Risk = 1:1
Buy Stop = $5.07
Take Profit = $5.23
Stop Loss = $4.91
Take Profit = +3.16%
Stop Loss = -3.07%
Oil is hitting support. risking about 30 ticks here. Looking for 49.9 and 51.30 on the pop.
Apparently i need more coffee as i put the support line at 48.5 NOT 49.5. I am LONG here with stops at 49.26.
You can wait for the 50.13 resistance to break to go long
or go long now and have a stop at 47.52.
However, there seems to be a better risk/reward if you go
long after 50.13.
Be patient with this kind of setup since it's a daily chart.
Also, I'm new so please trade accordingly.
