Where’s Crude Headed To?

WTI Crude Oil has had a decent year so far (+14.5% YTD). After being range-bound for a very long time, it finally broke out in June. However, after the breakout, crude has been in a mini-range for the past 2 months. Which way is it headed?

The Chart

After the breakout above the 98-100 level, Crude tested 109 and since has been range bound (again). What you want to see is a break and hold above or below the range. While the 50 day moving average could provide support here and cause crude to head higher, a break below 102.50-103 could trigger a lot of stops and send this baby back down to that 100 level. A break above 108.50-109, and we could see levels in WTI Oil that we have not seen in awhile (110 would be the most immediate resistance, which was the 20102 high and then 114-115 which was the 2011 high). Just keep an eye out for a move one way or the other!
