Rising oil prices have been the face of inflation, as everyone sees (and feels) the pain at the gas pump.
So what’s next for crude oil?
Today we look at the long-term “monthly” chart of crude oil and highlight a key level for investors to focus on into month-end.
We can see the recent spike higher reversed and closed back under $105. And now price is back trading in and around $105.
So what makes $105 important? Just take a look at the blue line (drawn from the prior top – at $105) and the red line drawn from the two prior highs (which currently intersects price at $105).
Needless to say, crude oil is a major macro indicator and input to the global economy. And I cannot help but think that how crude oil fares into month end – in regards to $105 – will be very important to stocks, bonds, commodities, and the economy. A close and breakout above $105 or a close move further below $105? Stay tuned!
