Crude Oil Prices Move Higher, Break Out Above Resistance

David Busick

Crude Oil prices have been trading higher of late and may be looking to keep the rally going. Last year’s brutal selloff of Crude Oil carried over into this year, but a near double bottom in January and March may be setting up for a continuation of the relief rally in Crude Oil prices.

Below is a daily chart that is geared towards swing traders. Using my Fibonacci method, I have a current daily price target of 58.25 for Crude Oil. And note that after breaking out above resistance at 54.24, that level now becomes support.

Additional support levels come into play at 53.39 and 52.61, while longer term resistance levels stand at 59.27, 69.54, 77.83, and 94.90 (those last two are way up there, but worthy of mentioning).

Bullish traders will need lower support levels to hold to keep Crude Oil in rally mode near-term. Trade safe.
