The failure to breakout to the upside suggests the move through the previous top was generated by buy stops.  

The lack of fresh buying on the breakout is understandable since crude oil took a long time to reach this breakout level as well as traveling a great distance from $91.47. Frankly, while traders have to respect the move and its potential impact on prices, speculators do not seem too interested in buying strength unless there is some fundamental reason to chase the market higher.

Technically, the market is moving higher at a pace of $2.00 per week from the $91.47 bottom. In order to maintain this pace, the market must reach $103.47.
