Oil Begins To Move Lower – Will Our Predictions Come True?

Recently, we posted a multi-part research post suggesting a collapse in Crude Oil could be setting up and how we believe this decline in energy prices may lead to a broader market collapse in the near future.  Crude oil fell more than 3% on November 19 in what appears to be a major price reversal.  On November 20, inventory levels and other key economic data will be presented – could the price of oil collapse even further over the next 60+ days?

Here is a link to our most recent multi-part article about Crude Oil from November 13 (just a week ago): https://www.thetechnicaltraders.com/what-happens-to-the-global-economy-if-oil-collapses-below-40-part-i/

OUR ORIGINAL RESEARCH CHART FROM JULY 2019

Our original research post, from July 2019, included this chart showing our Adaptive Dynamic Learning (ADL) price modeling system and where it believed the price of oil would go in the future.  This chart highlights expected price ranges and directions all the way into April 2020 with a low price level near $25 somewhere between February and April 2020.  Is Oil really going to reach a low price near $25 ppb in the near future?

On July 10, 2019, we authored a research article using our ADL predictive modeling for Oil.  At that time, we predicted Oil would fall in August, recover in September and October, then collapse to near $42 (or lower) in November and December.  You can read our followup to this article here.

In order for these predictions to continue to hold true, Crude Oil will have to fall below $47 ppb over the next 30+ days and then consolidate through December and January into a fairly tight price range between $42 and $49.  If this happens as we predicted back in July, then there would be a much higher probability that the February, March and April price targets are valid going forward.

On November 19, Crude oil reversed quite extensively to the downside after weeks of upward price pressure.  We believe this downside price rotation may be setting up a bigger, deeper price move that is aligned with our ADL predictive modeling systems results from July 2019 – eventually targeting the sub $50 price level near the end of November or early December.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

This potential move in Crude Oil is setting up a potentially great trade for active traders if you know how to profit from falling prices and I even talked about how to trade this move in my member’s only trading newsletter service. Remember, if our ADL research is correct, December and January will see very mild price action in Oil.  The bigger breakdown move happens in late January or early February.

On Monday another commodity gave us another trade and it popped 3.4% in our favor within the first trading session. Big moves in stocks, metals, and energy are ready for big price swings here, get ready!

As a trader, you need to be aware of the greater implications for the global markets if Crude Oil falls below $45 ppb (eventually, possibly falling below $30 ppb).  A large portion of the global market depends on oil prices being relatively stable above $50 ppb.  A decrease in oil prices will place extreme pressures on certain nations to maintain oil production and to generate essential revenues.  Depending on how this plays out in the future, falling oil prices could translate into far greater risks for the global stock markets and global economics.

What happens To The Global Economy If Oil Collapses – Part 3

This, the final section of this multi-part research article, will continue our exploration of the consequences that may result from our ADL predictive modeling system’s suggestion that Oil may continue to fall to levels below $40 over the next few months.

In Part I and Part II, we’ve highlighted what we believe to be very compelling evidence that any continue oil price decline from current levels may be setting up the global markets for a massively volatile price reversion – similar to what happened in 1929.

Prior to the stock market collapse in 1929 and the start of the Great Depression, commodity prices collapsed in 1921 and again in 1930.  This commodity price collapse was the result of over-supply and a dramatic change in investor mentality.  The shift away from tangible items and real successful investing/manufacturing and towards speculation in the housing markets and stock market.

Today, we want to focus on some of the core elements of our current global economic structure to attempt to present any more compelling evidence of a commodity collapse event that may happen after the past 7+ years of a massive credit market expansion event.  Allow us to briefly cover the events of the past 20 years.

1999: the DOT COM bubble burst after a mild recession in 1993-94 and a stock market rally from 1996 to 1999

September 11, 2001: Terrorist Attack on US soil.  Shocked the world and global stock markets.  Sent the world’s economy into severe contraction. US Fed lowered interest rates from 6.25% to 1.0% from 2001 to 2003.

2004-06: US Fed begins raising rates from 1.0% and gradually increased rates to 5.25% in August 2006: +525%.  Pushing the US credit market, and housing market, over the edge and starting the 2008 Credit Crisis.

2007-2008: US Fed lowered interest rates to near ZERO over a very short 16-month span of time as the US Credit Crisis event unfolded.

2009-15: US Fed continued to keep interest rates near zero throughout this time-frame and continued to pump capital in the global capital markets with multiple QE and debt buying events.  Other global central banks followed the US lead providing additional capital throughout the global markets.  This massive expansion of credit/debt over a 7+ year span of time allowed foreign nations to “binge” on cheap US and Euro credit/debt while an Emerging Market and Foreign Market recovery were taking place.

2016-2019: US Fed raised interest rates from 0.08% to 2.42% over this span of time. Pushing US Fed rates up by the highest percentage levels EVER: +3025%

This continued global cycle of “boom and bust” has wreaked havoc on global consumers and business enterprises.  Over the past 20+ years, various cycles of economic appreciation and depreciation have left some people considerably better suited to deal with these cycles while others have been completely destroyed by these events.  Now, it appears we are entering another period of “early warning” as global manufacturing activity, growth and economic output appears to be waning. Are we entering another period like the 1929 to 1940 period of the US where a global economic contraction resulted in a deeper economic recession/depression and took 15+ years to recover from?

The US Fed has recently started acquiring assets again – at a far greater rate than at any time since 2012.  It is very likely that the US Fed is “front-running” a crisis event that is already starting to unravel again – possibly aligned with institutional banking entities and global credit/debt risks.

Chinese factory orders have continued to fall recently and the news is starting to trickle out of China that the US trade tariffs have done far greater damage than currently expected.  This suggests that manufacturing, exports, and GDP for China have entered a massive decline.  What happens next is that commodity prices collapse because of the lack of demand from manufacturers and consumers. (Source: https://www.yahoo.com/finance/)

Chinese new loan origination rates have fallen to a 22 month “new low” – which suggests corporate and consumer borrowers are simply not willing to take on any new debt/credit at the moment.  This happens when a population decides they want to “disconnect” from any economic risks and shift towards a “protectionist” process. (Source: https://finance.yahoo.com)

Recent news suggests that Chinese demand for European consumer and luxury goods has also contracted dramatically.  Germany will release GDP estimates on November 14th.  It is our opinion that the Chinese have already shifted into a more protectionist consumer stance and that would mean that demand for non-essential items (call them high-risk purchases) are very low at this time.  If this is the case, the lack of true demand origination out of China/Asia could push much of Europe into a recession. (Source: https://www.yahoo.com/)

The last thing China would want right now is to blow the potential for any type of US/China trade deal – even if it means giving up more than they may have considered many months ago.  More tariffs or any type of tit-for-tat retaliatory trade war would not be in the best interest of either party at this stage of the game. Who flinches first? The US, or China, or the rest of the world?

So, the question, again, becomes..  “will a commodity collapse lead the global stock market into a prolonged period of price decline and/or a global recession over the next 10+ years?”

If so, can we expect commodities to collapse as they did after the 1929 stock market peak?

You may remember this chart from the earlier sections of this multi-part article.  It highlights what happened leading up to the 1929 stock market crash and how early warning signs of manufacturing and agriculture weakness continued to plague the markets while speculation in housing and the stock market pushed certain asset values much higher near the end of the “Roaring 20s”.

Are we setting up for the same type of event right now where global trade, manufacturing, and agriculture are weakening after the 2008 Credit Crisis and we are meandering towards a repetition of the events that led to the “Great Depression”?  Will commodities prices collapse to 2002 or 2003 levels for most items?  Will Oil collapse to levels below $30 ppb over the next 6 to 12+ months?  And what will happen to Gold and Silver throughout this time?

Can we navigate through these troubling events without risking some type of new collapse event or reversion event?  Are the central banks prepared for this?  Are traders/investors prepared for this?  Just how close are we to the start of this type of event?

The answers lie in what we do now and how the commodities react over the next 12+ months.  The one major difference between now and 1929 is that the world is far more inter-connected economically and there are more people throughout the world that have moved into the “economic class”. Thus, it is our opinion that any event that is likely to happen will be followed by a moderately strong recovery event – no matter how severe the outcome. The world is in a different place right now compared to 1929.  Overall, only time will tell if our research and ADL predictive modeling system is accurate with respect to future oil prices.

We believe it is critical for all traders to understand what lies ahead and the risks involved in “playing dumb” about the current market environment.  We recently authored an article titled “Welcome to the Zombie-land for investors” and highly suggest you read it. Our researchers will share this one component that should help to ease some of the stress you may be feeling right now – the most capable, secure, mature and best-funded (reserves) economies on the planet will likely lead any recovery process should an event as this happen.  Therefore, look for strengths in the most mature and capable economies on the planet if some new crisis event begins.

Even if a trade deal between the US and China were to happen today and eliminate all trade tariffs, would this change anything or would this simply pour fuel onto the “capital shift” fire that is already taking place with speculation reaching frothy levels?

What happens To The Global Economy If Oil Collapses Below $40 – Part I

Currently, commodity prices are the cheapest they’ve been in over 40 years compared to equity prices.  US Equities have continued to rise over the past 7+ years due to a number of external processes.  QE1, 2, 3, and Fed Debt Purchases Share Buy-Backs and creative credit facilities.  Only recently have investors really started to pile into the US stock market (see charts below). Global investors were very cautious throughout the rally from 2011 to 2016.  In fact, the amount of capital invested within the US money market accounts was relatively flat throughout that entire time.

It was only after the 2016 US presidential election that investors really began to have confidence in the global economy and started piling into the US stock market and money market accounts.  This was also after the time that Oil began to collapse (2014~16) as well as the deflation of Emerging Markets rallies.  With all this new money having entered the global markets and equities being extremely overbought currently, what would happen is Oil collapsed below $40 and the global economic outlook soured headed into the 2020 US presidential election?

On July 10, 2019, we authored a research article using our ADL predictive modeling for Oil.  At that time, we predicted Oil would fall in August, recover in September and October, then collapse to near $42 (or lower) in November and December.  You can read our followup to this article here.

Currently, Oil has followed our ADL predictive modeling relatively closely over the past few months.  Although the attack in Saudi Arabia sent prices skyrocketing in mid-September, Crude price has generally stayed within our expected ranges and has recently settled near $55.  If you notice the two GREEN BARS on the chart, above, September and October price expectations suggested price settling near $54 and 59 throughout those two months.  Now, with November upon us, the ADL predictive modeling system is suggesting Oil prices will collapse from levels near $58 to levels near $40 – a massive 31% price collapse.  In reality, the price could fall below on a deeper price decline event.

This Crude Oil chart highlights what we believe may happen in Oil over the next few weeks and months – where price may collapse below $40.  Yet, we started asking another question..  What happens to the global economy if Oil prices collapse below $40 before the end of 2019?  What happens to the nations that depend on exported Oil income and to central bank functions within the economy?

When we start to understand the correlation between the price of Oil and the expectations throughout the global market, we must immediately focus on the income expectations of nations that rely on oil as the main source of income.  If our ADL predictions are correct, Oil will begin to plunge to levels near $40 (possibly below $40) over the next 3~4 months.  How will foreign nations react to this loss of income and who are the most dependent nations on Oil revenues.

Oil-producing nations vary in scale across the world, yet the United States, Saudi Arabia and Russia are the largest producers.  Nations that are the most dependent on Oil revenues are some of the smaller, less mature economies of the world.  Should the supply of oil stay relatively consistent across the globe while an extended economic contraction continues, we must begin to question the sustainability of various nations in terms of oil revenues.

For many of these nations, the income from Oil exports make up more than 15% of their annual GDP – in some cases, with Brunei, Kuwait, Libya, the Republic of Congo, Saudi Arabia and Singapore, oil revenues make up more than 30% of GDP.  How would a dramatic decrease in oil prices act as an economic destabilization event for these nations? Could they survive the event?

If the price of oil were to fall to $40 from current levels (near $67), this would represent a 40%+ price decline.  Oil revenues for all nations would likely collapse by similar amounts.  Nations that are most dependent on oil revenues would be hardest hit and this decrease in national revenue would likely increase strains on future operations, debt/credit as well as potentially create massive social unrest and strife.

If our ADL predictive modeling system is accurate and oil prices collapse to near $40, the economic, social and future strains this creates for many nations become even more severe – at a time when an economic contraction is taking place.  This type of commodity price collapse could lead the world into a chaotic economic mess if it is prolonged.

In Part II of this article, we’ll explore the ramifications of this potential oil price collapse across the global stock market and other factors that may be setting up to drive a period of uncertainty and volatility within the global markets.

Opportunities are all around us.  Using the right tools to identify the true technical cycles, price cycles, and trading setup can help to eliminate risks and hone into more profitable trades.  It is almost impossible to time market tops and bottoms accurately, yet, as you can see from our work above, we have tools that can help us see into the future and help to predict when major price peaks and valleys should form.  Using a tool like this to help you determine when the real opportunity exists and when to time your trades will only improve your market insights and trading results….

As a technical analysis and trader since 1997, I have been through a few bull/bear market cycles. I believe I have a good pulse on the market and timing key turning points for both short-term swing trading and long-term investment capital. The opportunities are massive/life-changing if handled properly.

Where is the top for natural gas

We wrote a very telling research article on October 24th, 2019.  We never published it because we had other articles scheduled to be published over the next few weeks in the queue and because our subscribers get our trade alerts before the general public. At this point, we are sharing that past article as well as some current research for Natural Gas that should be very interesting to you.

Pay very close attention to the original October 24th article, below, and our prediction that the $2.75 to $2.85 level would be a likely target for the upside price rally from the basing level below $2.30.  Currently, Natural Gas is trading at $2.87 – reaching our initial target level.

If our research is correct, strong demand and limited supply globally may push Natural Gas well above the $3.20 to $3.40 level after a very brief pause happens near $3.00.  In fact, Natural Gas may be getting ready to rally past 2018 highs ($4.93) if the situation presents itself for such an incredible price rally.  What would it take for a rally like that to happen?  Much stronger demand for natural gas because of an early, extreme winter and extended global demand.

Price reacts to supply/demand imbalances.  In this case, if the demand far exceeds the supply capacities headed into the end of 2019, we could easily see Natural Gas rally above $4.00 very quickly.  Could it rally even higher and take out the $5.00 level?  Absolutely it could if the proper dynamics continue related to supply and demand globally.

CURRENT DAILY NATURAL GAS CHART

Remember to read the link from October 5th.  We’ve been warning of this move for more than 60+ days and have authored multiple research posts attempting to keep our followers aware of this setup.  This trade setup was telegraphed for us many months ago.  All you had to do was follow our research and stay aware of the trends as this momentum base setup in October near $2.25.

Natural Gas moved higher by nearly 2% on October 24th as our researchers predicted nearly a month ago.  This incredible momentum base below $2.30 seems to be a very strong support level for Natural Gas.  We believe this next rally may be bigger than the last rally which reached a high near 2.70.  Our Fibonacci price modeling system is suggesting a target price of $2.95 to confirm a new upside price trend.  This means the price would have to rally more than +26.5% from current levels to confirm a potentially much bigger upside price move.  Can you imagine seeing Natural Gas climb to above $4.50 again – like last year?

Near the end of October 2018, Natural Gas began an upside price move that really excited investors.  The first upside price leg began in mid-September, near $2.75 and rallied to a level near $3.35 – a +21.6% upside price move.  After a brief 12 to 15 day pause, another price rally began in early November 2018 near $3.23 and continued very aggressively over the next 11+ days to rally up to $4.93 – a +57% rally.

We issued a natural gas trade using UGAZ to members and this week we locked in 38.7% profit on a portion of our position and there is still a lot of upside potential left.

Is the same type of price advance could be setting up for an early November price rally from the $2.30 level to somewhere above $3.50?  This would result in a +50% price rally from recent lows without using any leverage which would be just amazing.

October 5, 2019: NATURAL GAS RELOADS FOR ANOTHER PRICE RALLY

PREVIOUS NATURAL GAS FORECAST DAILY CHART

Our proprietary Fibonacci price modeling system is suggesting the $2.95 price level is critical for any further upside price action to continue above $3.00.  The price must cross above the $2.95 level on a strong closing price basis before we could consider any higher price levels to become valid.  Our researchers believe that suggests the $2.75 to $2.85 level becomes a very real upside price target for skilled traders to pull some profits and protect any open long positions.

PREVIOUS NATURAL GAS FORECAST WEEKLY CHART

This Weekly Natural Gas chart highlights our Fibonacci price modeling system’s results and the Bullish Trigger Level near $2.95 (The GREEN LINE).  Pay very close attention to how quickly Natural Gas moved higher in November 2018.  If another move happens like that in 2019, we could be setting up for a big gap higher followed by about 10 to 15+ days of incredible upside price action.

Currently, the price of Natural Gas has crossed the Daily Fibonacci price modeling system’s Bullish Price Trigger level near $2.29.  This suggests that we are now in a confirmed bullish trend as long as the price stays above the $2.26 level on a closing price basis.  We would expect a continued moderate price rally from these levels to move price away from the momentum base level over time – before any breakout upside price move may begin.

This could become one of the best trades, besides Silver and Gold, headed into the end of 2019.  Get ready for some big volatility in Natural Gas as winter weather takes over much of North America.

November will be the month of breakouts and breakdowns and should spark some trades. I feel the safe havens like bonds and metals will be turning a corner and starting to firm up and head higher but they may not start a big rally for several weeks or months.

October was a boring month for most major asset classes completing their consolidation phase. Natural gas was the big mover in October and subscribers and I took full advantage of the bottom and breakout for a 15-22% gain and its till on fire and trading higher by another 3% this week already.

Natural Gas Reloads For Another Price Rally

As a technical trader, one has to really learn to appreciate when a trade “reloads” for another move higher.  Much like the Gold base/bottom in April 2019 below $1300 that we called back in October 2018.  When a trend confirms and we can see the potential for upside profits, but price performs a “deep pullback” withing that initial trend setup – it is almost like we’re dreaming.

After the downside rotation in Gold setup in April 2019, the next move higher pushed Gold prices up to $1550 from levels near $1275 – what a great move that was.  Now, imagine Natural Gas may give us another chance to get long below $2.30 with an upside target near $3.00 before mid-November?  Incredible – right?

Read our original research post here : https://www.thetechnicaltraders.com/has-the-basing-setup-in-natural-gas-completed/

Here it is, folks.  After setting up a very deep price base in August 2019, Natural Gas has, again, moved back into the basing zone and our historical price research still suggests October and November will be strongly positive for Natural Gas.  We believe the upside potential in Natural Gas could target $3.00 fairly quickly – possibly before mid-November 2019.

THIS DATA IS QUOTED FROM OUR ORIGINAL RESEARCH POST…

“Our research tools suggest that September has a 65% probability of rallying more than 6x the historical range.  This would suggest a rally potential of more than $2 exists in September for Natural Gas.  Our tools also suggest that October has a 75% probability of rallying more than 3.2x the historical range.  This would suggest a potential rally of more than $1.20 in October. “

WEEKLY NATURAL GAS CHART

Before you continue, be sure to opt-in to our free market trend signals newsletter.

This Weekly Natural Gas chart highlights the “bump” in price that happened in September and how price has fallen back into the basing zone.  It is almost as if the market forgot what Natural Gas should be doing, historically, at this time of the year.  Well, who cares.  If the markets are going to give us another chance at a +30% price rally – we’re not going to miss the opportunity to buy within the basing zone.

Our opinion is that any opportunity to buy below $2.40 is an adequate entry level.  Ideally, try to wait for levels below $2.30 if possible.  This new basing zone pricing may not last very long, so try to take advantage of lower prices when possible.  Ideally, the upside potential for this move should be fairly easy to target given the historical price patterns that consistently drive Natural Gas higher in October and November.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

As skilled traders, we have to learn to take advantage of when the markets provide us with these extreme opportunities and setups.  We believe any upside move above $2.75 to $2.80 would be a suitable outcome for this extended basing pattern.  Gutsy traders could attempt to hold for levels above $3.00 – but we’re not confident that extreme price level will be reached quickly.

One thing most traders don’t understand is that the extreme winter weather that just hit the US and Canada last week could be a fairly strong indicator of early demand for heating oil, natural gas and other consumer energy products as an early winter may be setting up.  Either way, we believe this setup is a gift for skilled technical traders – don’t miss out.

Chris Vermuelen, Founder of The Technical Traders joins Cory Fleck to look at the charts for oil, gold and the US markets. While all are trending in very different directions the US markets are closing in on a very important level that if broken could be very bad for risk on investors. Also of note that oil has given back all the gains since the Saudi oilfields bombing.

Note – This interview was recorded Wednesday Oct 2nd late in the day.

Recorded conversation with analyst on Gold, Silver, Crude Oil

5 OTHER CRUCIAL WARNING SIGNS ABOUT THE US MARKETS TOPPING AND THE GOLD AND SILVER BULL MARKET

In early June I posted a detailed video explaining in showing the bottoming formation and gold and where to spot the breakout level, I also talked about crude oil reaching it upside target after a double bottom, and I called short term top in the SP 500 index. This was one of my premarket videos for members it gives you a good taste of what you can expect each and every morning before the Opening Bell. Watch Video Here.

I then posted a detailed report talking about where the next bull and bear markets are and how to identify them. This report focused mainly on the SP 500 index and the gold miners index. My charts compared the 2008 market top and bear market along with the 2019 market prices today. See Comparison Charts Here.

On June 26th I posted that silver was likely to pause for a week or two before it took another run up on June 26. This played out perfectly as well and silver is now head up to our first key price target of $17. See Silver Price Cycle and Analysis.

More recently on July 16th, I warned that the next financial crisis (bear market) was scary close, possibly just a couple weeks away. The charts I posted will make you really start to worry. See Scary Bear Market Setup Charts.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

In short, you should be starting to get a feel of where stocks are headed along with precious metals for the next 8-24 months. The next step is knowing when and what to buy and sell as these turning points take place, and this is the hard part.

VIX To Begin A New Uptrend and What it Means

The news of the drone attack on Saudi Arabia over the weekend prompted a big upside move in Oil (over 10%) and a moderate downside rotation in the US major indexes/stock market.  Although prices had recovered slightly by the opening bell on Monday, September 16, the shock wave resulting from this disruption in oil supply is just now starting to play out.

The long term uncertainty in the markets, as well as the rotation in the US Dollar and other foreign currencies, could play a bigger role in the type of volatility and extent of the immediate price rotation that may result from this external news event.  Our VIX predictions and ADL predictive modeling system are suggesting volatility will become front and center over the next 60+ day before settling into a more narrow price range.

As we see it, this disruption in oil is an external factor related to the markets.  Yes, it will disrupt about 5% of the global oil supply.  Yes, some type of retaliation could take place over the next 30 to 60 days.  Yes, the global markets will continue to rotate until they have priced in the additional risk related to this current event and potential future events.  That means investors must understand the value and opportunity of proper position sizing and risk management.  The next few weeks may be full of surprises.

VIX INDEX FIBONACCI UPSIDE TARGETS CHART

Our VIX chart highlights what we expect in terms of the potential upside price volatility in the US stock market.  You can see we expected the VIX price to decline after the peak in early August 2019, then bottom near August 20~21 and attempt a move higher (related to our August 19 breakdown expectations).  This breakdown never happened as news events pushed the general markets higher – abating the spike in the VIX we were expecting.  Our further expectations were that VIX would cycle lower near the end of August 2019 and into very early September 2019 before setting up a bottom near 24 and extending higher.  Obviously, our expected levels were off by quite a bit, but the rotation in the VIX continues to align with our rotational cycles.

Therefore, we believe the potential for an upside price move in the VIX is still very valid, especially given the events of last weekend and the continued trade talks, market fragility and potential for major news events.  We believe the VIX may be starting an upward price cycle that could push it well past 21~24 should the US stock markets rotate lower or contract.

Our ES Weekly Adaptive Dynamic Learning (ADL) chart highlights why we believe an extended volatility range exists over the next 60+ days and why we believe a rotation of 8 to 12% is a real possibility in the US stock market/major indexes.  Our ADL predictive modeling system is very useful because it highlights where price may attempt to target out into the future based on a proprietary price mapping/data mining solution.  The purpose of this tool is to map historical price activity by unique price pattern, technical data and categories, learn from the past and attempt to use this data to predict the future.  We’ve found it to be extremely valuable in our research.

This ES Weekly ADL chart suggests an 8 to 12% price range is set up in the US stock markets over the next 60+ days.  This suggests that and price weakness or external news event could send the US stock market much lower before finding any real support.  Any absence of this breakdown event or crisis-type news event would suggest that prices will attempt to drift moderately higher over the next 60+ days.

In other words, there is a very real potential for a potentially big downside price rotation currently set up in the markets.  That potential vanishes in early November 2019 as the ADL predictive modeling system suggests a more narrow target range for the price with an upside price bias driving markets to potentially new all-time highs.

 

CONCLUDING THOUGHT:

Get ready for some really great trading opportunities over the next 4+ months.  Any downside price rotation will present a very clear buying opportunity for skilled technical traders and members of our ETF Wealth Building Newsletter as we lead into the November/December market rally (Christmas Rally).  This means we must continue to be cautious of extended volatility and play these price rotations with a strong focus on managing risk before the November/December rally sets up to close out 2019.

WHAT ARE THE REAL UPSIDE TARGETS FOR OIL POST DRONE ATTACK?

After the news of the drone attack on the Saudi Arabia oil refinery, traders knew this week would be full of bigger price moves, reversals and some real opportunity for profits.  We were also well aware of the risks of engaging in these market moves prior to fully understanding the dynamics of this event.  We heard from many of our friends in the industry about open positions that were not properly scaled to deal with risk – and we know some of our friends took a hit early today.

The real questions before skilled technical traders are:

What will happen with Oil and where will price find the first level of resistance?

What will happen to the US and foreign major markets related to this supply disruption?

How will future economic expectations react to this disruption?

How can I profit from these moves? First,  opt-in to our Free Trade Ideas Newsletter Here!

 

We can answer the first question fairly easily – where is the first level of resistance?  The shorter-term resistance resides at $64.41 ($64.50 to $66).  The longer-term resistance resides at $71.35 ($71.50 to $72.50).  This means the price of oil should run into some moderate resistance near $65.  If it breaks past that level, then the next level of resistance is near $72.

The second question is a bit more complicated to answer.  We believe the US markets will continue to benefit from the capital shift that has continued to take place over the past 4+ years and from deep US oil supply capabilities and reserve capabilities.  Foreign markets, particularly those that are dependent on oil imports, may experience a new impulse of economic weakness as oil costs rise.  Exporting countries will see new revenues to support ailing policies.  The answer is, the more mature economies will survive without much trouble – weaker, less mature, economies could experience some real pain from this move in Oil.

The third question is open to interpretation as foreign currencies continue to shift.  Initially, any country that is dependent on oil imports will experience some real future expectation economic pain.  Countries that are in a more stable position regarding Oil demands could still experience some pain as currencies shift valuations.  Overall, the length of this disruption and the possibility of any further supply disruption is really where these future expectations come unglued.  The opportunity for further disruptions or future changes in market dynamics is very real.  This is a very “fluid” process at the moment.

Profiting from these moves is really quite simple – patience, wait for the right setups, confine risks and make sure you already have your hard cash reserves and protection positions in precious metals.  These swings in the markets are going to get better and bigger as this continues to play out.  Skilled technical traders will have no shortage of great trade opportunities throughout the next 15+ months.

DAILY CRUDE OIL PRICE CHART

This Daily Oil chart highlights our proprietary Fibonacci price modeling system and the key upside price target (resistance) near $64.50.  Ultimately, this is the upper resistance level that is the first level of major resistance for this upside price move in Oil.  Rotation within these three Fibonacci target ranges has already started to happen.  This suggests price volatility is massive in oil and should continue in the near future.

 

DAILY XOI OIL STOCK INDEX CHART

This Daily XOI chart highlights the Daily Fibonacci price targets and clearly shows how quickly price has rallied after the weekend.  The XOI price is already above the three Fibonacci price targets, thus we must revert to previous price PEAKS as new resistance levels.  Currently, the 1300 level is a key resistance level which would closely align with our $64.50 level in Crude.

 

WEEKLY XOI OIL STOCK INDEX CHART

This XOI Weekly chart provides a longer-term picture of the upside targets in XOI.  The upper targets near 1425 and 1475 would translate into a $69 to $71 price target in Crude Oil.  Therefore, any breakout above $66~67 could easily rally up to $69 to $71 before reaching any key resistance levels.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

If the XOI is unable to clear the $1302 level, then this upside move in Crude Oil may actually be over as fast as it started.  Failure to climb above $1302 in XOI would result in a complete “new price high” failure and would suggest a top is forming.

We love it when the markets move like this.  Quite honestly, these are the best conditions for skilled technical traders to find extremely profitable trade setups.  The most difficult part of trading in this type of market is protecting against risk and position sizing.  If you are ready to learn where new trade setups are forming like in gold miners, and metals and want to execute trades effectively within this volatile rotation then check out my ETF trading newsletter.
