Crude Oil Stuck In Two Week Trading Range

Crude Oil Stuck In Two Week Trading Range

September Crude Oil grinded lower on Thursday, July 21, 2016 making a new low for the week at 44.52 but it was unable to get below the 44.42 low established on July 11th. Crude Oil is still in its 2 week trading range and it would take a close below 44.31 (the 21 WMA) to create a path to 41.64 (the 50 WMA), in my opinion. Support on the daily chart comes in at 44.26 (the 100 DMA) and then...

The strong upside move in the equity markets has not slowed down this week. We continue to see new highs put in the market without much resistance. The S&P seems to still be embracing the low interest rate environment.  I’m not quite sure if there is anything out there right now that will keep a cap on the market over the next few weeks. I’ve stated previously that I think there will be...
