Technical Oil (2012-01-06)

Morning Report: Crude Oil Futures for February Settlement The bearishness seen yesterday stopped in areas above 100.60, which in result means that the downside movement seen was only a correction to retest the previously breached resistance level. The mentioned resistance, which turned into support now, is related to the bullish continuation technical pattern. This pattern supports resuming the upside move, affected by the Butterfly harmonic pattern. The trading range for today is among the major support at 98.00 and the major resistance at 106.05. The short-term trend is to the downside with steady daily closing below 105.00, targeting 65.00. **New York Candlesticks** Previous Report Weekly Report
