cRUDE awakening?

  1. I'm not a futures trader or an oil analyst, but the crude oil advance may be on borrowed time? Hope so!
  2. Coming into support

    Will it hold?

    Anyone have a quote on crude traded on something other than Globex?

    I realize it is not traded on Globex from 2:30 to 3:15 EST.
  4. Do I really see Crude under $62 this AM.

    Looks like support is broken ... retest of $58?

    Or is it $51?

    Don't know if that will hold but I'm staying away for now.

    Seems like oil will be much more influenced by news than technicals now.

  6. After gapping down through support @ $63 a few days ago, $58 would appear to be the next target?
  7. I think it will go down to $58 or close to it but bounce back and fluctuate around $60.
  8. Looks like the beast is tamed for a while anyway.
    Seasonals would suggest a trading range at lower levels for a few months, I think.
    There are others that know better than I, I'm sure.

    I've not posted for months, busy, but on a fundamental basis:

    - global production running ahead of weakening demand for both crude and distillates; contrary to the confused IEA report, ytd China demand growth very much (more than 50%) below same period last year so a gradual splintering of 'the China story' as the 11th 5-year plan calls for different, more scientific, development priorities; US consumers helping prove that distillates demand is not inelastic, gradual re-ramping of GOM production and refiners, etc.

    - I'd say that we'll see CL in the 30s sometime next year - If pressed, I'd say JUNE or possibly JULY.

    - a CL/NG type spread might be interesting through JAN.
  10. Hi!

    I'm up late too.
    I'd say that is an excellent scenario
