Light Crude (September contract) is testing medium-term support at $40/barrel. Breach of support would signal a test of primary support at $33 to $34. Respect of support, on the other hand, would indicate another test of resistance at $50. And breakout above $50 would signal a primary up-trend.
The long tail and strong volume at $40 suggest that support may hold. But I wouldn’t bet the house on it. Especially when gasoline inventories have surged, the US rig count is rising …..and demand is set to fall.
