In our previous report, we also mentioned buying the crude oil at $23 for the target of $29 and $35, and both targets have been achieved like a cakewalk.


Technical Analysis: – From a technical perspective a short term uptrend line has been breached out which is flashing the downside signal for the time being. The RSI is also turned down from the overbought territory and a bearish crossover on the MACD indicator is also flashing the sell signal. The Red SAR dots also favoring the bears and providing them full strength to fall. The $30 is a strong support level followed by $27.80 whereas $38 is key resistance followed by $40.
