Crude oil may see some stability – at least temporarily. The daily chart is showing a double bottom notated by a pair of 13’s and just recently, a completed TD Buy Setup @9. However any bounce may translate into a prolong sideways trading, before a resumption of the slide in prices. A look at the monthly comparison chart shows contains plenty of information. The first supports the daily chart’s bounce as the monthly crude chart has completed a 9 count TD Buy Setup. However, the TTM_Squeeze’s momentum component may not have bottomed when comparing crude’s epic drop back in 2008. The interpretation is that any bounce is just setting up for further downside. Also note in the monthly chart, the slide in oil has not affected the correlation between crude and emerging market equities.
