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.

Why Are The Markets Ignoring The Treasury Inversion?

Our research continues to support a Bullish price bias over the next 30+ days, very likely reaching to new all-time highs again, before June/July 2019.  For many months, other researchers have continued to predict “doom and gloom” with warnings of Treasury yield inversions, global collapse events, and other crisis events.  Yes, we believe continued price rotation will drive future price swings and they could be volatile moves – yet we believe any crisis event will actually become an incredible opportunity for long traders to BUY into the markets at extreme lows.

Recently, our researchers focused on OIL and the Transportation Index as key elements suggesting this upside move is far from over.  Oil has moved from below $55 ppb to well above $60 ppb.  We believe this move will continue higher to target the $64 ppb level were resistance is likely to be found.  We do believe that some price rotation in Oil is likely to happen in the Summer months – when travel increases and Summer blend gas hits the markets.  Winter has been uniquely difficult this year and the rise in Oil prices, where OPEC and foreign market events have attempted to push prices above $50 ppb, is warranted given global economic activities.

 

While Oil continues to climb, the Transportation Index is also rallying above recent resistance near $10,500 and pushing higher targeting the $11,250 level.  This is important because the Transportation Index typically leads the US economy by about 3~6 months and is a key indicator of investors future expectations for the US and global economy.  Any push above $11,000 in the Transportation Index would likely mean we are going to attempt to reach all-time highs near $11,634.  A move like this would likely push the US Stock Market Indexes well above recent all-time highs as well.

 

Much of our recent analysis has been an attempt to relate the opportunity that exists over the next 30~60 days in the US Stock Market.  For well over 12 months, we’ve been suggesting a capital shift is taking place where the US stock market, and the US Dollar, are uniquely positioned to become safe-haven investments for foreign investors.  We believe this process is still taking place and we believe the US market could continue to push up to new all-time highs before another rotational move sets up.  Our most recent research suggests a peak may form near June/July 2019 that should concern traders.  Until then, we believe the upside price bias will continue and we still believe new all-time highs are about to be reached.

As of today, we have technical confirmation that a renewed upside price move is taking place and we continue to watch the precious metals for any signs of a base/momentum bottom.  Follow our research and learn how we can help you find and execute better trades.
