Crude Oil Technical Analysis Strong comeback supported by the US NFP report

June 12, 2024 at 10:35AM
Fundamental
Overview

Despite the recent OPEC+ extension
of the voluntary output cuts, Crude oil sold off as the price
broke the support of the May range. The drop though might have been just technical
as the bearish momentum picked up on the breakout. The price eventually bottomed
around the $73 region and erased all the losses.

More recently, the market
got a boost from the strong US
NFP report as that showed that demand is likely to remain strong amid the global
growth pickup as depicted also by the PMIs. Moreover, we have some major
central banks beginning to ease their policies and China will likely continue
to do so as deflationary forces are still present.

In the big picture, better
growth expectations and positive risk sentiment should be tailwinds for the
market, but we will need to crack the strong resistance at the $80 level first
to increase the bullish momentum further.

Crude Oil
Technical Analysis – Daily Timeframe

On the daily chart, we can
see that crude oil broke the strong support
around the 76.50 level and sold off as momentum players piled in. The price
bottomed around the 73.00 level and eventually extended the rally following the
US NFP report.

The price is now breaking
the trendline
which might increase the bullish momentum into the key 80 resistance. That’s
where we can expect the sellers to step in again with a defined risk above it
to position for a drop into new lows. The buyers, on the other hand, will want to
see the price finally breaking higher to increase the bullish bets into the
90.00 region.

Crude Oil Technical
Analysis – 4 hour Timeframe

On the 4 hour chart, we can
see that we have now an upward trendline defining the current bullish momentum.
If we get a pullback into the trendline, we can expect the buyers to lean on it
with a defined risk below it to position for a continuation of the rally and
the break of the 80 resistance.

The sellers, on the other
hand, will want to see the price breaking below the trendline and the 76.85
level to regain some control and position for a drop into new lows.

Crude Oil Technical
Analysis – 1 hour Timeframe

On the 1 hour chart, we can
see that we have also the confluence of the 50% Fibonacci retracement level around the trendline. This
should technically strengthen the support around the 77.00 region, so it will
be a key zone to keep an eye on in case the price falls into it. The red lines
define the average daily range for today.

Upcoming
Catalysts

Today we get the US CPI data and the FOMC rate decision. Tomorrow,
we have the US PPI and the latest US Jobless Claims figures. On Friday, we
conclude the week with the University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment survey.
