Short term Elliottwave view in Crude Oil (CL_F) suggests that the instrument is currently correcting cycle from 11/14/2016 low (42.21) in 3, 7, or 11 swing before the next leg higher. The decline starting from 2/23 high (54.94) is unfolding as a double three Elliottwave structure where wave ((w)) ended at 52.54 and wave ((x)) ended at 53.80. Near term focus is on 52.47 – 52.64 area to complete wave (w) of ((y)), then Crude Oil should bounce in wave (x) of ((y)) before turning lower again towards as low as 49.34 – 50.41 area, provided that pivot at 53.8 high remains intact. We don’t like selling the proposed pullback and expect the next buying area of 49.34 – 50.41 to find dip buyers for the next leg higher or at least a 3 waves bounce.
