Crude Oil Forecast: WTI’s Relief Rally Might Be Short Lived

By Dean Rogers WTI’s rally from $27.56 late last week was sparked by a few positive technical factors such as a daily bullish engulfing line and momentum divergence. These are factors that would normally accompany a major turn. The move up was a bit over exuberant though, and has stalled at $32.74. Major support at $29.6 is already being tested, and it looks like the rally might be short lived. Technicals will generally lead the way when a turn is taking place. However, markets, especially the energy markets, have a propensity to overcorrect after being so deeply oversold. To sustain the move higher a shift in the underlying fundamentals must take place. Given today’s pullback, it looks like the market is doubtful that will be the case. The move up is not doomed (yet), but major support is being already being challenged. The rise from $27.56 unfolded as five-waves that stalled at $32.74, the trend terminus (Y^3/X^2) of Wave I. The decline from $32.47 might be a three-wave correction. However, prices are testing major support at $29.6. A close below $29.6 would call for $28.6 and then a retest of the $27.56 low. Give the confluence of support at $29.6
