Has Crude Oil Reached Near-Term Downside Exhaustion?

By -

Today’s upside reversal action comes on the heels of a bearish Inventory Report, and from a new low in the vicinity of important, intermediate-term support at $38.90, which represents the 50% retracement level of the entire Feb- Aug advance.

In addition, buying interest emerged at the lower-boundary zone of the June-July down-sloping corrective price channel, classic action into downside channel exhaustion.

Of course, Oil must preserve today’s gains, and follow-through to the upside to confirm a significant turn.

The action so far today is very promising technically– and provides preliminary evidence that Oil has completed the correction of its initial, intermediate-term recovery period.
