Crude Oil Update: Why Fibonacci Price Targets Matter

In January of 2016, I wrote an article on Crude Oil Futures where I identified a resistance zone of 37.28 to 41.47 using my Fibonacci method, which I refer to as the “One Shot, One Kill” method.

Note that I was able to identify this resistance zone after my projected target of $27.01 had been hit and the price of crude oil had begun to enter into a relief rally.

The chart below shows that while crude oil futures were trading at 58.88 (in June of 2015) there was a lower outstanding Fibonacci price target of 27.01. (this chart and target can be found in the link above)

Now let’s take a closer look at the aforementioned resistance zone for oil prices and how I determined where that resistance would be.

My “One-shot, One-kill” method of identifying targets, support and resistance is a method I spent years developing and have found to be amazingly accurate when used correctly. In the chart below, you’ll see the resistance zone highlighted as well as a level marked at $42.41.
