CLK12:

  • Short Term Trends are bullish.
  • Confirmation of a bottom with a range violation on 03/19/12 @ 107.86. Confirmation of a bottom with a close on 03/19/12 @ 108.56. Upside Target = 110.56 – 112.12.
  • Inside VRCB generated on Wednesday. Possible confirmation of a top with a range violation @ 105.69. Possible confirmation of a top with a close @ 105.69 or lower.
    • May Crude was able to advance Wednesday due in part to a storage withdrawal when a build was expected but remained relatively range bound during the rally.
    • Conflicting economic data seems to keep specs guessing but the market is in a solid bull formation and it would take breaking last week’s low @ 104.29  in order for this market to reverse course and not make new contract highs.
  • Projected Daily Range: 1.97
  • Projected Weekly Range: 4.45
  • Projected Monthly Range: 10.26
