Crude Oil Prices May Be Topping, IEA Report and Inventory Data Due

See our quarterly crude oil price forecast to learn what will drive the trend through mid-year!


Gold prices plunged to test support guiding the uptrend from December 2016. A daily close below its lower boundary, now at 1286.22, exposes the 1260.80-66.44 area. Alternatively, a move above 1304.00 would pave the way for another challenge of support-turned-resistance in the 1323.60-33.42 zone.


The appearance of a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern coupled with negative RSI divergence hints crude oil prices may be topping. A daily close below 69.53 (trend line, former range top) opens the door for a test of resistance-turned-support in the 66.22-67.36 area. Alternatively, a break above the May 10 high at 71.86 exposes the 75.00-77.31 region (August 2011, June 2012 swing lows).
