Price Signal Summary - WTI support At The 50-Day EMA Remains Intact For Now

OUTLOOK
  • On the commodity front, the trend condition in {O4} Gold is unchanged and the outlook remains bullish with price continuing to trade closer to its recent highs. The latest rally maintains the price sequence of higher highs and higher lows and note that moving average studies are in a bull-mode condition, reflecting positive market sentiment. The next objective is $2452.5, a Fibonacci projection. Initial firm support is at $2310.2, the 20-day EMA. A move lower would be considered corrective.
  • In the oil space, a bull theme in WTI futures remains intact, however, last week’s move lower highlights the start of a short-term bearish corrective cycle. The contract has traded through the 20-day EMA and this signals scope for an extension towards the 50-day EMA, at $80.70. A clear break of the 50-day EMA would signal a stronger bearish theme. On the upside, key resistance and the bull trigger has been defined at $86.97, the Apr 12 high.
