Market Insight: Crude Oil

The Wall Street Journal reported early on January 15 that crude oil futures fell over in Asia on concerns over the reduced oil demand in the region.

If you look at the price action closely, though, you'll see that crude fell on January 14, then rose again later the same day, then fell a little in Asian trading, then rose some more on January 15 -- before erasing the rally that same day.
 
In other words, there's been a lot of up and down, but not a whole lot of up OR down. The market remains "uncommitted" to a trend.
 
Here's what the chart of crude looks like since the start of the year; January 14 and 15 are circled in red. (Copied from EWI's Energy Specialty Service; Elliott wave labels not shown.):
 
 
However, EWI's Chief Energy Analyst, Steve Craig, has been tracking an Elliott wave count on a daily chart which, if correct, portends a move of at least $20 -- and soon.
 
The latest forecasts inside Energy Specialty Service tell you in which direction crude should move next. (You also get support and resistance price levels that could be used to help manage position risk.)

The Elliott Wave Principle is a detailed description of how financial markets behave. The description reveals that mass psychology swings from pessimism to optimism and back in a natural sequence, creating specific Elliott wave patterns in price movements. Each pattern has implications regarding the position of the market within its overall progression, past, present and future. The purpose of Elliott Wave International’s market-oriented publications is to outline the progress of markets in terms of the Wave Principle and to educate interested parties in the successful application of the Wave Principle. While a course of conduct regarding investments can be formulated from such application of the Wave Principle, at no time will Elliott Wave International make specific recommendations for any specific person, and at no time may a reader, caller or viewer be justified in inferring that any such advice is intended. Investing carries risk of losses, and trading futures or options is especially risky because these instruments are highly leveraged, and traders can lose more than their initial margin funds. Information provided by Elliott Wave International is expressed in good faith, but it is not guaranteed. The market service that never makes mistakes does not exist. Long-term success trading or investing in the markets demands recognition of the fact that error and uncertainty are part of any effort to assess future probabilities. Please ask your broker or your advisor to explain all risks to you before making any trading and investing decisions.
