Will Oil Find Support Above $50?

January 28, 2019

By TheTechnicalTraders.com

Recent global news regarding Venezuela, China, and global oil supply/production have resulted in the price of Oil pausing over the past few weeks near $53 to $55 ppb.  We believe the continued supply glut and uncertainty will result in oil prices falling, briefly, back below $50 ppb before any new price rally begins.  Our researchers at TheTechnicalTraders.com believe historical resistance near $54~55 is strong enough to drive prices lower before new momentum picks up for a renewed price rally.

Eventually, yes, oil will rally above $55 and attempt to target the $65+ price level.  Yet we don’t believe that move is going to happen right now.  We believe the global uncertainty; the slowing Chinese economy and the global supply glut will result in a fundamental price decrease before any momentum for an upside price move begins.  Our analysis suggests a price move back below $50 ppb, likely targeting the $46~47 level, where basing may occur.

Uncertainty in Venezuela and other oil-producing nations may result in a disruption in supply at some point in the future.  We must be cautious of unknown situations that could result in dramatic price shifts.  Yet, overall, with supply levels still high and slowing global economic expectations, it makes sense that oil would attempt to base and find support near recent lows – between $46~48.
