WTI Crude Oil chart

The daily bar chart pattern of WTI Crude Oil manged to move above its 50 day EMA, but retreated after facing strong resistance from the ‘support/resistance zone’ between 53 and 55.

Oil’s price bounced up a bit after getting support from its 20 day EMA, but is trading well below its falling 200 day EMA in a bear market.

Daily technical indicators are turning bearish. MACD is above its signal line in bullish zone, but may be forming a ’rounding top’ reversal pattern. RSI is seeking support from its 50% level. Slow stochastic has corrected down from its overbought zone.

US sanctions may curb oil exports from Venezuela, but with China’s economy slowing down and ample global supply, a sustained rally in oil’s price is unlikely.

On longer term weekly chart (not shown), oil’s price closed below its three weekly EMAs in long-term bear territory. Weekly technical indicators are in bearish zones and not showing much upward momentum. The 50 week EMA has just crossed below the 200 week EMA – the ‘death cross’ technically confirming a long-term bear market.
