RBOB Gasoline & Crude Oil Rallying Into Year End

crude oil prices risingBack in November, I posted about the interesting bottoming action in Gasoline prices and what that could potentially mean for a bottom in Crude Oil (CL_F), and possible Crude Oil rally. Since then, Oil has put in a bottom and rallied as high as 99.40 this past week.

Does Gasoline has more rally in the tank? Is that it for the Crude Oil rally? Well, perhaps not. There are some interesting developments that are indicating further gains could still be in the cards for both commodities. Let’s take a look at a few daily charts to highlight the setups.

Gasoline prices traded higher this week and broke above a downward channel. They also put in a “3 white soldiers” candle formation, which is usually a bullish formation.

Crude Oil is working on an inverse head and shoulders formation on the daily. There could be resistance at that 100-101 level, but above that and the Crude Oil rally is on.
