Crude Oil Collapses Overnight On Supply Glut And Fractal Analysis Say $7 is Support

Crude Oil continues to be a big mover as the supply glut has really pushed global capacity to its limits. Dozens of full tanker ships are anchored off the California and Singapore coastlines waiting for demand to pick up.  As long as the Virus shutdown persists globally, the supply gut will continue to wreak havoc on oil price levels into Summer.  As of early Monday morning, Crude Oil is lower by -17% to $14.10 as I type.

What most readers of our articles here don’t fully grasp is just how accurate our long-term predictions truly are and its why we link to past research posts that clearly prove our analysis can be deadly accurate.

You may remember our incredible research post from July 2019 which suggested Crude Oil would collapse in early 2020 calling out a potential $14 price target.

You may also like to review our warning from January 2019 related to Oil and Energy. We also predicted the gold bullion breakout and bull market to happen last year in April, May, or June, which is it, and we called that six months prior. Eric Sprott talked about our gold prediction and how much he liked out analysis on his podcast back then.

Our Adaptive Fibonacci price modeling system is suggesting a support zone near $9 to $18 may become a new sideways trading zone for Crude Oil.  We believe the downside risk to price levels is still excessive, but we also believe that true price valuation levels will keep Oil above $4 ppb as global demand will eventually recover.  Thus, we believe Oil will likely settle into a sideways price range between $9 and $18 as this virus event continues.  It may attempt brief moves outside these ranges but eventually, settle back into this range until true demand begins to accelerate higher.

DAILY CRUDE OIL CHART
ADAPTIVE FIBONACCI PRICE MODELING

This Daily Crude Oil Chart highlights our Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system’s results and clearly shows the Support Zone.  We believe this Zone will become a new sideways price channel for Crude oil.

WEEKLY CRUDE OIL PRICE CHART – SUPPORT ZONE

This Weekly Crude Oil Price chart also highlights the Support Zone.  The potential for Crude prices to retest the $7 to $8 price range based on this massive supply glut is not out of the question.  We believe Crude Oil will settle into the Support Zone while attempting to establish a price bottom near $7 or $8 over the next 90+ days.  It may become an extended sideways bottom/flag formation as the bottom forms.

Our suggestion is to expect a more sideways bottom formation in Crude Oil over the next 60 to 90+ days.  The supply-side glut is really pushing price levels down to extreme levels.  Nothing will change that aspect of the market dynamic until we exit this Virus shut-down and demand starts to skyrocket higher.  That may come in August or later in the year.

We do believe Oil will attempt to find support above $7 to $8 ppb as we believe the supply glut will push oil prices to a “core value level” where global buyers will attempt to say “we can’t sell oil at anything less than $x.xx”.  We believe that level is $7 to $8 ppb overall.

As a technical analyst and trader since 1997, I have been through a few bull/bear market cycles in stocks and commodities. I believe I have a good pulse on the market and timing key turning points for investing and short-term swing traders. 2020 is an incredible year for traders and investors.  Don’t miss all the incredible trends and trade setups.

Because they are, in most cases, our largest store of wealth other than our homes, and if they are not protected during a time like this, you could lose 25-50% or more of your entire net worth.

Two Leading Indicators for Crude Oil Point To Higher Prices

On Friday morning I created these charts on the price of crude oil, the energy sector stocks (XLU), and also the Canadian Dollar, which I think paint a clear picture of what to expect for the price of crude this coming week.

I always like to look at the leading indicators of the asset which I am interested in trading. For those trading the price of crude oil you should be watching what the energy stocks are doing or the sector as a whole. I use XLE ETF for this. I also will show you the Canadian dollar and what it is going later in this post.

Energy stocks are a way for traders to leverage the move in oil so the smart/big money tends to move into these stocks before the underlying commodity (oil) will start to change direction.

PRICE OF CRUDE OIL – DAILY CHART

Oil has been trading sideways for a couple of weeks. The range may not look big but just note that it’s a roughly 25% range from the bottom to the top of the blue box. The key take-aways here is simple. Oil is still trading at the bottom of the chart and trading sideways. What we will be looking for is a breakout of this zone in either direction which should induce a strong rally or selloff to the expected price levels of $34, or $14. These moves are likely to happen quickly over a 2-3 day period to expect an explosive move.

PRICE OF ENERGY SECTOR STOCKS ETF (XLE) – DAILY CHART

Energy stock generally leads to the price of oil by a few days. The important points on this chart are that price has rallied off the lows, and is forming a bull flag pattern which means higher prices are expected.

Much like crude, a break in either direction in XLE can be traded, but the pattern which has formed puts the odds in favor of an upside breakout and rally of roughly 12%.

before closing this page, so you don’t miss our next special report!

PRICE OF CANADIAN DOLLAR – DAILY CHART

The Canadian dollar is very tied to the energy sector, both the price of oil and energy stock because we are a resource-rich country, with oil being once of our top resources.

As you can see in the chart below the Canadian dollar it too has formed a bull flag pattern and looked primed and ready for another rally higher. The currency market, in general, is massive and when a large asset class is showing signs of reversing you better pay attention.

When I see a currency forming strong pattern to give us an expected price breakout direction, I like to look at what that is telling me. What companies or commodities will this move affect? In this case, money is moving into the Canadian dollar expecting oil to bottom and rally which should help increase the value even more.

I TALK LIVE ON TV ABOUT THESE TRADE SETUPS

If you want more details on this trade setup just watch this clip from TraderTV where I talked with Brendan Wickens in detail. Click Here To Watch Video

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

In short, this coming week is most likely going to be much wilder than last week. While I didn’t cover on the other asset classes just know that precious metals, the major stock indexes, bonds, and oil have al built powerful patterns. Breakouts of these patterns will trigger big moves 10-25% in some cases, so get ready for fireworks this week!

Emergency Technical Traders Market Crash Update & Video Analysis

The US stock market opened Sunday, March 8, 2020, dramatically lower.  Oil collapsed 25% to near $30.  Gold shot higher to levels just above $1700.  All of the major US indexes were lower than 5%.  As of this morning, the US major indexes are lower by 6.40%, and oil down 23%. Bonds are set to open 7-8% higher at this time.

As mentioned in yesterday’s update, we could see metals and miners get hit with margin calls, and silver took a beating last night down over 5%, and miners are down 5% in pre-market, so things could get uglier yet.

The war on oil has officially started. To me, it’s a typical bully/bad guy move. When everyone is bleeding, and in trouble like the financial markets, everyone’s mental state, and our health, the true bullies and bad guys (sharks) come out of the woodwork. Russia is being difficult and will keep production high for oil; the Saudis are giving out hug discounts on oil and jacking up their production to flood the market with their oil and take as much of the market share possibly. When blood is in the water, the sharks attack.

This oil war is going to devastate the USA and Canadian oil sectors and businesses if the price of oil trades between $20-35 per barrel, which I think is what will happen and could last a few years.

The US futures for stock hit a circuit breaker and halted futures trading of the Indexes once a 5% drop took place, but ETF and regular stocks will continue to trade. The next round of circuit breakers are only during regular trading hours and was implemented after the May 10, 2010, flash crash.

This new set of circuit breakers have never been hit before which are:
A drop of 7% stock halt for 15 minutes.
A drop of 13% stocks halt for 15 minutes.
A drop of 20% stocks halt for the rest of the session.

This is a huge breakdown in the US markets and indicates much greater weakness within the global markets and further concern that the COVID-19 virus may continue to disrupt the US and European markets (as well as others).

The potential that multiple billion-dollar disruptions in the US and other foreign markets, including travel, leisure, autos, hospitality, and many others, may see a continued decline in sales and incomes over the next 6+ months.  We don’t believe we will truly understand the total scope of this COVID-19 virus event until possibly well after July 2020.

The crazy part is I’m in a little secluded town in Canada, and people are starting to panic and buy food and toilet paper for their bunker stash. Almost everyone I talked to this weekend while out snowboarding has been affected by manufacturing, trade show cancellations, travel restrictions, etc..  We are in a full out global crisis that seems to affect everyone in some way no matter their location, occupation, or business.

There will be some great opportunities to find and execute incredible trading opportunities – yet the risks are very high right now for volatility and price rotation.  Think of the markets like a body of water in a severe storm.  The waters are very choppy, unstable, and chaotic – just like the markets.

Unless you have the right information, skills, and vehicle to navigate these waters, there is a very high probability that a dangerous outcome could happen. I closed out our last position on Friday with our TLT bond trade for a 20.07% profit and we are 100% cash watching this market VS trying to survive it.

Right now, Cash is king.
Waiting for proper setups and understanding risks is critical.  Timing your entries and targets is critical.  Learning to stay away from excessive risk is essential.

We’ll scan the markets for you and find the best opportunities that set up over the next week.

We appreciate your loyalty and want to continue to deliver superior analysis and research.  Please be well aware that the current market environment is very dangerous for traders.  The VIX recently touched above 50.  We believe it could reach levels above 75~90 still.  These are incredible levels for the VIX.

Shipping Rates Plunge, Commodities and Stocks May Follow

An almost immediate reaction to the Coronavirus outbreak in China and throughout most of the world has sent shock-wave through the global markets – particularly seen in Shipping and Oil.  The actions within China to attempt to contain the virus spread include shutting down entire cities and setting up mass quarantine events.  It is estimated that as many as 8+ million people were quarantined within cities in China throughout the Chinese New Year.

Chinese President, Xi Jinping, warned recently that the Coronavirus, and the efforts to stop it, may greatly reduce the Chinese economy over the next few months.  The Chinese President urged top officials to refrain from “more restrictive measures” to contain the virus.  It is our opinion that more restrictive measures are essential to efforts to contain the spread of this virus and that further contraction in the Chinese economy, as well as other economies, are almost set in stone at this point.

Information we’ve received from some friends living in China and Hong Kong suggest travel is very restricted, face masks are very scarce, people are staying inside their homes and surviving as family units within very close contact with one another.  They are scared, trapped and unable to do anything other than try to wait this out.  Imagine what this is doing to the local economies, shops, offices, and businesses?

Reflectively, global shipping rates have collapsed over the past 30+ days as one of the first signs of the contraction in the global markets.  As of December 31, 2019, both Tanker and Dry-Bulk rates were hovering near $14,000 per day.  Now, this rate is near $2500 per day – a -82% decrease.  As you consider the broader aspects of this massive decrease in shipping rates, consider the global contagion event that may setup if the Belt-Road region is adversely hit with the Corona Virus.

SEA SHIPPING SECTOR ETF – DAILY CHART

Shipping stocks are taking a beating. Factories are shut down, the product is not being shipped, and even product ready to be shipped many don’t want to take delivery for the time being.

From a short term standpoint, this sector is looking oversold, but depending on how much the virus spreads we could see another 20% from the current price.

CHINA’S BELT-ROAD INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS

China’s Belt-Road Initiative consists of massive infrastructure, port, and other projects throughout Europe, Asia, India, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Russia, Africa, and other nations.  These projects have been initiated over the past 5+ years and are well underway.  We believe the spread of the Coronavirus may follow a path along with the Belt and Road projects and potentially infect a larger number of individuals over the next 30+ days than originally expected.  If this virus moves into the Middle East or Africa, containment may become very difficult.

The reality is that Shipping and Commodities could see a dramatic price decline as this virus outbreak continues over the next 60+ days.  Reports are already starting to hit the news wires that Autos and manufacturing supplies are starting to pile up and ports in China.  Without a functioning manufacturing sector and workers to keep everything running, China’s economy will grind to a halt very quickly.

This translates into lower Oil prices, lower raw material prices and higher metals prices.  A capital shift will continue to take place throughout the world where capital will move away from risky environments and towards more secure investment environments.  Thus, capital will move away from Asia, India, the Middle East and potentially Europe and towards the USA, Canada and possibly Mexico.  Everything depends on what happens over the next 60 to 90+ days with regards to this virus outbreak.

MONTHLY CRUDE OIL CHART

This Monthly Crude Oil chart shows how quickly Oil rotated lower in January 2020.  Currently, Oil is trading near $50 per barrel and may break lower towards the $44 to $46 price level before finding any real support.  Overall, our research team believes Oil may reach as low as $35 to $36 ppb before reaching a bottom.  You can read our earlier research here: https://www.thetechnicaltraders.com/oil-begins-to-move-lower-will-our-predictions-come-true.  Within that research post, dated November 19, 2019, we highlighted our earlier predictive modeling research from July 2019 suggesting Oil would break substantially lower in November 2019 and again in February 2020.  We predicted this downside move in Oil nearly 8+ before it happened.

Transportation Index Monthly Chart

This Transportation Index Monthly chart highlights the sideways FLAG formation setting up in the US Transportation sector.  If the US market breaks lower as a result of lower global economic activity, we believe we will see the Transportation Index fall very quickly to levels below $9,500.  A breakdown in the Transportation Index would be an early warning sign that the US economy is headed towards a recession or contraction event.  Global shipping has already confirmed this event is taking place – yet the US Transportation sector has not shown much weakness.

Traders need to be very aware of the risks in the markets and the continued Capital Shift that is taking place throughout the planet.  Capital is running away from risk and pouring into more stable markets.  The ultimate risks to the global economy are for those nations where debt/economy levels are fragile, to begin with – which is why we highlighted the Belt Road project.  If China enters a protective mode where the Chinese Central Bank attempts to bail out Chinese companies/initiatives, we believe the Belt Road project could become a great risk.  And we believe this could happen very quickly given the current market environment.

The dynamics of global markets are changing very quickly.  It is time for traders to prepare for bigger volatility and large range sector rotation.  Follow our research, learn how we can help you stay ahead of these bigger moves in the markets.  2020 is going to be a fantastic year for skilled traders – you just have to stay ahead of the risks and be prepared to take advantage of the opportunities as they are presented.

Inverse Energy ETF Nearing Profit Taking – Could Rally Further

Following up on an exciting article we shared with friends and followers on January 17, 2020, it appears ERY has reached the first stage for profit taking with a fairly strong potential we may see this rally continue even higher.  Please review the following repost of our original research and analysis of ERY back in early January.

January 17, 2020: ENERGY CONTINUES BASING SETUP – BREAKOUT EXPECTED NEAR JANUARY 24TH

ERY BEAR ENERGY ETF – WEEKLY CHART

At the time we authored this ERY article, our team of dedicated researchers believed that Oil would retrace from recent highs near $65 and continue to move lower – targeting the low $50 to mid $40 price level.  Our expectations were that a move in ERY from near $39~$42 to an initial target level near $55~$57 would be an excellent opportunity if Oil broke lower.  You can see the CYAN Fibonacci projected target level that aligns with our original target price level on this chart below.

ERY BEAR ENERGY ETF – DAILY CHART

Currently, we believe this current target level has been successful and urge any friends and followers to pull at least 50% of your profits at this current level.  If you decide to allow the rest of your position to continue, stops should be moved to levels near or below $52.  We believe the continued upside potential for this trade is still valid with a secondary target above $67~$75.  Trail your stop with every new weekly high and look to start exiting this trade on any price tick above $67 or $72.

ERY BEAR ENERGY ETF – WEEKLY CHART

Some resistance may be seen between $56 and $61.  There are historical price peaks near these levels that may act as a price boundary throughout this rally.  Once the $64 to $65 level is breached, ERY should continue to rally higher is Oil and Natural Gas continue to weaken.  Remember, trail your protective stop higher with each new Weekly high.

We are pleased to deliver another incredible trade setup found by our team of dedicated researchers.  Nothing like finding a trade that rallied from $40.50 to 57.33 (+41%) and may continue much higher.

Please take a minute to visit www.TheTechnicalTraders.com to learn about our dedicated services for skilled traders and how we can help you find and execute better trades.  2020 is certain to be filled with extreme volatility and price rotation.  You might as well take advantage of our research and services to create greater opportunities for profits and trades.

Energy Continues Basing Setup – Breakout Expected Near January 24th

After watching Crude Oil fall from the $65 ppb level to the $58 ppb level (-10.7%) over the past few weeks, we still believe the energy sector is setting up for another great trade for skilled investors/traders.

We are all keenly aware that Winter is still here and that heating oil demands may continue to push certain energy prices higher.  Yet Winter is also a time when people don’t travel as much and, overall, energy prices tend to weaken throughout Winter.

Over the past 37 years, the historical monthly breakdown for Crude Oil is as follows:
December: Generally lower by -$0.33 to -$0.86.  Averages to the downside: -3.65 to +3.08
January: Generally lower by -$4.57 to -$6.72.  Averages to the downside: -2.68 to +2.27
February: Generally higher by +$8.41 to +13.73.  Averages to the upside +3.07 to -2.54
March: Generally higher by +7.33 to +$15.62.  Averages to the upside by +2.84 to -2.14

Over the past 25 years, the historical monthly breakdown for Natural Gas is as follows:
December: Generally lower by -$2.34 to -$5.26.  Averages to the downside: -0.81 to +0.69
January: Generally lower by -$5.14 to -$7.97.  Averages to the downside: -0.69 to +0.45
February: Generally lower by -$1.48 to -$3.62.  Averages to the downside -0.50 to +0.49
March: Generally higher by +0.63 to +$1.88.  Averages to the upside by +0.41 to -0.70

Over the past 35 years, the historical monthly breakdown for Heating Oil is as follows:
December: Generally lower by -$0.16 to -$0.37.  Averages to the downside: -0.14 to +0.09
January: Generally lower by -$0.52 to -$0.96.  Averages to the downside: -0.09 to +0.10
February: Generally higher by +$0.48 to +$1.06.  Averages to the upside +0.11 to -0.08
March: Generally higher by +0.03 to +$0.11.  Averages to the upside by +0.09 to -0.10

This data suggests an extended Winter in the US may prompt further contraction in certain segments of the energy sector that may prompt an exaggerated downside price move in Crude Oil and Natural Gas.  Heating Oil may rise a bit if the cold weather continues well past March/April 2019.

Conversely, if an early spring sets up in the US, then Crude Oil may begin to base a bit as people begin to traveling more, but Heating Oil and Natural Gas may decline as cold weather demands abate.

Heating Oil has almost mirrored Crude Oil in price action recently.  Our modeling systems are suggesting that Crude Oil may attempt to move below $40 ppb.  This move would be a result of a number of factors – mostly slowing global demand and a shift to electric vehicles.  We authored this research post early in January 2020 – please review it.

January 8, 2020: IS THE ENERGY SECTOR SETTING UP ANOTHER GREAT ENTRY?

We believe any price level below $40 in ERY is setting up for a very strong basing level going forward.  We have identified two “pullback zones”.  The first is what we call the “Deep Pullback Zone”.  The second is what we call the “Deeper Pullback Zone”.  Any upside price move from below $40 to recent upside target levels (above $50) would represent a 25%+ price rotation.

Historically, February is a very strong month for ERY.  The data going back over the past 12 years suggests February produces substantially higher upside price gains (+1899.30 to -394.28) – translating into a 4.8:1 upside price ratio over 12 years.  Both January and March reflect overall price weakness in ERY over the past 12 years.  Thus, the real opportunity is the setup of the “February price advance”.

We believe any opportunity to take advantage of this historical technical price pattern is advantageous for skilled traders/investors.

This is a pure technical pattern based on price bar data mining.  This is something you may not have ever considered unless you had the tools to search for historical price anomalies and rotation patterns.  We have created a suite of tools and price modeling systems we use to help our members find incredible opportunities – this being one of them.

Get ready, February will likely prompt a very nice rally in ERY if historical price triggers confirm future price activity.  The price pattern in February suggests a large upside price move is likely in ERY and we believe these low price basing patterns are an excellent opportunity for skilled traders.

Is The Energy Sector Setting Up Another Great Entry?

Another wild week for oil traders with missiles flying and huge overnight price swings in crude. As we recently pointed out within our current Oil research article, Oil and the Energy sector may be setting up for another great trade.  We recently commented on how the supply/demand situation for oil has changed over the past 20+ years.

With US oil production near highs and a shift taking place toward electric and hybrid vehicles, the US and global demand for oil has fallen in recent years.  By our estimates, the two biggest factors keeping oil prices below $75 ppb are the shift by consumers across the globe to move towards more energy-efficient vehicles and the massive new supply capabilities within the US.

Our researchers believe the downside price rotation in Crude Oil early this week, after the US missile attack in Iraq, suggests that global traders are just not as fearful of a disruption in oil supply as a result of any new military actions in Iraq, Iraq or anywhere near the Middle East.  If there was any real concern, then the price of Crude Oil would have spiked recently.

We talk more about what we expect with oil both the bullish and bearish outlooks in this recently recorded conversation with HoweStreet.

This leads us to believe the inverse Energy ETF, ERY, maybe setting up a very nice bottom in price below $40.  Ultimately, we believe a deeper price bottom may set up in the next 10 days where ERY may trade below the $36~37 range, but time will tell if we are correct about this or not.

Historically, price levels below $40 have resulted in some very nice long trade setups in ERY.  This ERY Daily chart highlights the Support Channel we believe exists in ERY and why we believe any entry-level below $36 is an outstanding entry point for any future upside price move.

WEEKLY ERY CHART

This Weekly ERY chart highlights the past rallies that have originated from within the Support Channel.  Pay special attention to the size and scope of these moves.  The October 2018 rally resulted in a 183% price rally.  The April 2019 rally resulted in a 57% price rally.  The July 2019 rally resulted in a 50% price rally and the last move in September 2019 resulted in a 41% price rally.

Could this next setup in ERY be preparing for another 40% to 60%+ upside price rally?

We believe the setup in ERY is very close to generating an entry trigger.  We have not issued any new trade triggers for our members-only service as we are waiting for confirmation of a potentially deeper price move in ERY.  Right now, get ready for what may become a very good setup in ERY over the next few weeks.

Watch what happens in the energy sector over the next 30 to 60 days.  We may be setting up for a fairly large price rotation as the tensions spill over into the global markets and precious metals.  We may find that Oil is the big loser over the next 60+ days.
