It is too early to dive into bullish positions head first but a base may be forming at least enough for a bounce to the down sloping trend line. In recent sessions I’ve advised bearish trades to exit. For the last 7 sessions futures have been establishing a base and on a settlement above $87/barrel in December contract it would be signal in my eyes an interim bottom is in. The orange line identified as the 8 day MA has also served as resistance for the last 2 weeks so as we retake that hurdle that would also help the bullish case.
A return to the 50% Fibonacci level and the trend line puts his contract back near $89.50. Not necessarily the start of a bull market but enough action for a quick long trade in either futures or option for nimble traders. Aggressive traders should gain light bullish exposure trying to capitalize on an appreciation in the weeks to come.
