WTI Crude Oil chart

The daily bar chart pattern of WTI Crude Oil had slipped below the 50 level intra-day on Nov 29 & 30, but managed to close above 50 on both days. On Dec 6, oil’s price successfully tested support from the 50 level.

Announcement of a 1.2 million barrels/day production cut by OPEC and non-OPEC oil producers from Jan ’19 appears to have put a floor on oil’s price at 50. However, three attempts to rally above 54 faced strong resistance from the falling 20 day EMA.

‘Death cross’ of the 50 day EMA below the 200 day EMA (marked by gray circle) has technically confirmed a bear market. Expect bears to remain in control despite the OPEC production cut because of demand slow down.

Daily technical indicators are in bearish zones after correcting oversold conditions. MACD has crossed above its signal line inside its oversold zone. RSI and Slow stochastic have emerged from their respective oversold zones, but are not showing any upward momentum.

On longer term weekly chart (not shown), oil’s price closed well below its three weekly EMAs in long-term bear territory. Weekly technical indicators are looking oversold. MACD is falling below its signal line in oversold zone. RSI is seeking support from the edge of its oversold zone. Slow stochastic is moving sideways well inside its oversold zone.
