David England: Ask the Professor - Has Oil Bottomed?


Today I answer your question, has Oil bottomed?   Let’s review the $WTIC chart I designed for an interview in early June.

Key Points...
1.   Top Box-WTIC is NOT trading opposite of the US Dollar-see red box
2.   Second Box-WTIC is trading with an inverse .77 correlation to the SPX
3.   Main Box-see (A) last June the price dropped 24%. A 24% drop from the most recent high in January would take the price down to $42
4.   Fourth Box-XLE hard support ($63.37) is highlighted-red slotted line
5.   Bottom Box-although volume has been high-I do not see capitulation

Action Points…
1.   A 24% drop from the most recent high in January is around $42
2.   Next levels of WTIC support are $41 then $39.19
3.   Previous rallies off support were 14%, see March and May 2017. A 14% run                                            from $42 support takes the price to $48
4.   Go to your Playbook (file E A4) for Energy fund plays and (file H HA 1&2) for leveraged plays.  Click here for information on my Playbook 2016/17
5.   Identify candidates and set alerts on all candidates
6.   Develop patience and wait for Simple Simon Signals before entering
7.    If trading leverage, tight stops are a must 

My answer to your question, has Oil has bottomed is NO.  After a possible bump (short covering) at these levels, I see a re-test to $40 and below.
