Spot Light Crude Surges Through Resistance


Tensions in Iraq put a big bid into Spot Light Crude ($WTIC) as this key commodity broke above its March-May highs. Overall, crude formed an ascending triangle over the last few months and today's breakout signals a continuation of the January-February surge. The height of the pattern (105 - 98 = 7) is added to the breakout for an upside target (105 + 7 = 112). Broken resistance in the 105 area turns first support to watch on a throwback.
