Oil Breaks Triangle Base

By -

Oil broke below support today but managed to close back above it. Key support for oil is at 48.46. What makes this level important is that it is the base of the descending triangle that has formed. It is make or break time for this pattern, as oil nears the sweet spot of this pattern. The key levels to watch now are the 50.15 level and the 48.46 level. A break above 50.15 voids this pattern. While a break below 48.46 and more importantly a close below it, confirms that pattern. The descending triangle provides a potential move of about -10% if it was to break. This would send oil down $44. Keep an eye out because if Oil sells off it just might be that catalyst that gets this market to sell off further. This pattern is also seen in USO.
