CHART VIEW – Crude Oil Futures by Jeff Gilfillan

NYMEX WTI Crude futures front month contract

 

Front month CME Group NYMEX Crude Oil futures reached a 3 ½ year high of 72.83 on May 22nd. The post financial crisis 50% front month level of 70.44 was temporarily breached in early May and lasted about 3 weeks before retreating into the mid-60s.

 

There is a low volume area on a weekly chart between 71.50 to 78.20 area in front month crude oil futures. This is a key transitional area that will need strong fundamental support to breach and hold. Previous lows from 2011 (74.95) and 2012 (77.28) also provide chart price resistance.

 

Strong long-term support is between 47-50 and short term shakeout levels are about $10 higher at 56-57. Volatility should continue but this also may provide short lived opportunities for both producers and users to hedge at needful levels.
