Crude oil keeps on being very volatile. The medium-term technical structure remains clearly negative in a context of oil oversupply but there is a strong short-term upside move. Hourly support is given at 26.19 (20/01/2016 low). Expected to see further short-term increase.
In the long-term, crude oil is on a sharp decline and is of course no showing any signs of recovery. Strong support at 24.82 (13/11/2002) is now on target. Crude oil is holding way below its 200-Day Moving Average (setting up at around 47). There are currently no signs that a reverse trend may happen.
