    • After being sold off over $5 in the first two trading sessions of the week as the Syria trade seemed to be unwinding, look for some substantial backing and filling to occur on Wednesday due to the severe oversold nature of the market.
  • Projected Daily Range: 2.39
  • Projected Weekly Range: 4.61
  • Projected Monthly Range: 8.68

    • October WTI Crude Oil gapped lower from Monday’s settle on Tuesday to fall over $4 from this week’s high as it moved towards the lower end of the ST support trend channel that has held the market lows since July.
    • WTI will need to find support above the $105 mark this week if the uptrend is to remain intact or else risk a severe sell-off that would run stops down to $100.

  • Projected Weekly Range: 5.76
  • Projected Monthly Range: 10.28

    • October Natural Gas dropped lower for most of the session on Tuesday before receiving a late day bounce back near the daily mid-range as trader’s look to extended weather forecasts.
    • Tuesday price action should be viewed as moderately bearish but will need to not close above $3.63 in order to keep the pressure applied to the market if it is going to eventually break below $3.50 by week’s end.
