Price Signal Summary - Oil Futures Remain Vulnerable Following Tuesday's Sell-Off

  • On the commodity front, trend conditions in Gold remain bearish and Tuesday’s strong sell-off reinforces this theme. The move lower signals the end of the recent corrective bounce and attention is on support and the bear trigger, at $1804.9. A break of this level would confirm a resumption of the downtrend and open $1787.3, 50.0% of the Sep 28 - Feb 2 bull leg. The yellow metal needs to breach $1858.3, Mar 6 high, to signal scope for a stronger reversal.
  • In the Oil space, a sharp sell-off in WTI futures Tuesday has defined a key near-term resistance at $80.94, Feb 7 high. A break above this hurdle is required to reinstate the recent bullish theme and would open $82.89, the Jan 23 high and a key resistance. On the downside, support to watch lies at $75.83, the Mar 3 low. A continuation lower and a breach of this level would strengthen a bearish case and open $73.80, the Feb 22 low.
