WTI Crude Oil Futures Weekly Chart Outlook via @KnovaWave
WTI broke the inner daily downtrend channel and cloud to break the tekan and test the cloud bottom run to the second channel after running through the 50 dma crossing though the Tenkan, We failed to get back over Kijun even with ‘Iran tests’. A C wave or a iii of I are the alternatives. Watch for spits now with fear in the pricing.
WTI again finished the week under the weekly Tenkan, Kijun and 50wma (green), now as key resistance outer channel, We tested the cloud base and closed at the chikou. Watch Murrey confluence with the cloud acting as support, failure.
A reminder that CFTC’s weekly #CoT updates covering the week to July 2 are delayed until 3:30pm ET on Monday
