Part I of Our Crude Oil Trading Strategies Article for this Week of Trade (UNLOCKED).
Crude oil was trading in an uptrend channel on a sixty minute chart time frame since October 3 2019 until January 7, 2020.
The sell-off is now over 1400 points from high 65.00 dollar range in early January to 51.25 on FX USOIL WTI at time of writing.
The 60 minute oil chart below shows the channel trend lines and sell-off.
At some point oil will bounce, how far it bounces depends on a number of technical and fundamental factors that we will look at in detail in Part II of this article (Premium).
The primary basic set-up as I see it includes an over-shoot to the downside at this point considering historical price extensions for crude oil trade (technically speaking) and obviously the Corona virus scare coming out of China has given oil traders reason to take considerable risk off here.
But it will bounce.
We will be looking for a snap-back trade at minimum in the range of 400 ticks at this point, but this range of snap back could be significantly more if oil continues to sell off this week.
On the swing trade side (consideration) I wouldn’t start a swing until you see a considerable trending channel form on lower time – frames. The time frame you choose depends on your trading style, risk, size management and time-frame. Here again, in Part II of this post we will look at those levels in more detail.
We will also look at daytrading levels to watch closely.
Whichever way you look at it a significant opportunity for a long snap-back trade is setting up here and could occur this week.
The monthly crude oil chart that I shared publicly earlier this evening below shows a probable bounce area in the region of 49.50s on FX USOIL WTI.
