Oil Runs into a Wall of Resistance

 | 

The US Oil Fund (USO) started the year strong with a surge above 39, but cannot hold above this level as the ETF plunged over 1.5% on Thursday. USO was also turned back in the 39-40 area in November and December. In the indicator window, note that Spot Light Crude ($WTIC) has had trouble staying above $100 since mid November. Today's decline in $WTIC is not yet reflected on the chart.
