West Texas Intermediate
The WTI Crude Oil market fell a bit during the course of the week, as we continue to see a lot of noise in general. The negative candle for the week does not suggest much though, because quite frankly it is still well within the range of the last several weeks, so I think we will simply grind sideways more than anything else. Having said that, if we were to break down below the 20 week EMA underneath, then we probably could drop down to $35, possibly even $30. On the other hand, we break above the 50 week EMA, then we are probably going to the $49 level. Short-term trading is preferred at the moment though.

Brent markets went back and forth during the course of the week to form a bit of a bullish candlestick, counteracting the shooting star from the previous week. With that being the case, it is likely that we are going to be stuck in a range between $45 and the 20 week EMA underneath. Short-term trading back-and-forth continues to work, and it probably will be the case for some time. Ultimately, the volatility is going to pick up and is going to continue to be very noisy. That being the case, we do not quite have the argument for a longer-term trade yet, but if we break significantly above the $45 level then it is time to start buying. If we break down below the 20 week EMA, then it is time to start selling.
