CL: Crude Oil posting a major sells off yesterday, breaking the Weekly low posted on Wednesday at 105.44 and posting a new weekly low at 104.76. Currently the CL is consolidating around the weekly lows. Longer term trend is still bullish for the crude oil, but a deeper setback could be ahead in light of recent gains in the crude oil. The CL has closed 4 consecutive weeks higher prior to this week. Short term preferred strategy is being bearish as long as we are below 105.89 with target objectives at 104.25 and 103.80. A move above 105.89 will negate this outlook and could indicate a resumption of the bullish momentum.
