I recently wrote a bullish trading piece on Crude Oil as it was attempting to breakout above its down-trend line.
That breakout call was premature, as price has bided time in a sideways consolidation. Perhaps it was a sign of the breakout to come, however.
Once again, crude oil is attempting to breakout above $70 and its falling downtrend line. Further, momentum is trending higher.
We are bullish here for a trade and have a price target area of $76.80 to $78 (if the breakout holds). That’s about 10 percent higher. Stops will be important for any traders as price has been narrowing and is susceptible to volatility.
