In early April, WTI cleared rising wedge resistance near 61.60.

The market went on to carve two new swing highs above the 63.60 region.

However, like most upward breaks of ascending patterns, it didn’t last.

As of Friday’s close, the last three weeks of movement are nothing more than a false break.

Even the weekly time frame shows a bearish engulfing pattern.

WTI bearish engulfing pattern

In fact, this past week’s candle engulfed the previous two weeks.

Crude oil is also back below the 64.00 handle which served as key support for the market in June and August of last year.

Any retest of the area between 63.20 and 63.60 next week is likely to attract sellers.

With that in mind, I favor selling WTI for what could be a substantial move lower.

How low, exactly?

It’s difficult to say, but as long as oil is below 63.60 resistance on a daily closing basis, the 60.30 area is exposed followed by 58.20 and 55.40.

And if the market treats this as a rising wedge, it puts the objective at the pattern’s inception point or 42.45.

Buyers would need to secure a daily close back above the 64.50 area to negate the bearish outlook.

      1. However if you draw a trendline on the daily time frame, with lows since the 24 th December 2018, it is still not broken as yet, so technically speaking the uptrend is still intact…..so the possibility of reaching 70.27 is still there!

        1. Also the harmonic strength index in the weekly is still overbought so more gains may in future be possible..

        2. I simply DO NOT see it as a false break, it is simply correcting before a move higher even towards the 72.50 handle.

          1. I think it will correct till 61.66 where it will touch the trendline but not break it, then all the way up to 72.50

  2. Hi Justin , nice to know about WTI Crude . Just want to know whether breaks fall upto the inception point all the times or only sonetimes. What should be the profit target?
