  • January Brent Crude was able to rise to its highest closing price all week on Friday in a relatively tight trading session heading into the weekend as congressional leaders were able to appease the markets with promise of compromise on the fiscal cliff.
  • Look for a continuation of Friday’s gains on Monday as the market challenges new highs for the month above $110.69.
  • Should Brent trade to $110.70 this week, look for the market to continue moving higher to the month end objective of $114.74.
  • Projected Daily Range: 2.10
  • Projected Weekly Range: 5.43
  • Projected Monthly Range: 10.65

WTI Crude Oil (January ‘13):

  • Short Term Trends are bearish.
  • Confirmation of a top with a range violation on 11/07/12 @ 84.86. Confirmation of a top with a close violation on 11/07/12 @ 84.86. Upside Targets = 88.99 – 89.89.
  • January WTI Crude Oil also moved to new highs for the week on Friday because of the speculation of compromise in Washington and increasing tensions in Israel.
  • Look for a solid move higher on Monday as the market looks to spring out of the recent consolidation phase and challenge once again the $90 mark.
  • Projected Daily Range: 1.93
  • Projected Weekly Range: 4.97
  • Projected Monthly Range: 10.61

Natural Gas (December):

  • Short Term trend is bearish.

  • December Natural Gas reversed course on Friday to move back near the week’s highs and close at its highest weekly level in nearly a month as Thursday’s sell-off proved to be nothing more than slight profit taking after a sprinters’ rally early in the week.
  • While natural gas got to within just a penny of entering our downside support zone that was issued on Thursday morning, the market now looks to be resuming full bullish form and could trade as high as $3.90 by early this week.

  • Projected Weekly Range: .272
  • Projected Monthly Range: .624
