Futures Trading Coach: This Is How Low Crude Oil May Fall

Bearish technicals and fundamentals could spell more downside for oil. Thats the view from John Hoagland at TopstepTrader.

Crude-oil futures (@CL) may extend their recent slide to about $45.50, according to his analysis of recent price action. It closed around $51 yesterday, and is down from a range around $63 before sellersgot activein late May.

We were looking at a bearish flag, and now its breaking down, Hoagland said on yesterday mornings Market Forecast video. He alerted $52.30 as a key level, which proved prescient about two hours later.

@CL briefly spiked $0.10 over that level after the Energy Department reported weekly inventories. It flirted with $52.30 over the next 20 minutes before proceeding to drop more than $1 into the close. Traders shorting a single contract at Hoaglands level would have made more than $1,000 from the move.

If you were there, if you were looking at that, if you took that short, you really didnt take a lot of heat, he said in the afternoon.

Hoagland, Senior Performance Coach atTopstepTrader, reviews key futures contracts and events every day on YouTube. His company evaluates traders based on objective criteria, looking to fund successful candidates with the companys capital.

A combination of rising supplies and weaker demand are weighing on crude. U.S. shale fields continue to flood markets with oil, prompting the government to lower its price estimate by almost 6 percent yesterday. Inventories have also been higher than projected for nine of the last 11 weeks.

OPEC and Russia have been hapless to brake the selling with production cuts. Still, any unknown changes to the political stability of the oil producing regions of the Middle East can change the picture dramatically. An example of that occurred overnight when two tankers were attacked in the Gulf of Oman.

Hoaglandreminded traders that crude-oil futures will roll from July contracts (CLN19) to August (CLQ19). He expects most of the activity to change on Tuesday. That process, which occurs every month in oil, could slow its directional move.

He also saw short-term bullish momentum in S&P 500 e-mini futures (@ES) and the euro (@EC). In both cases, Hoagland said traders should watch upcoming economic reports like jobless claims this morning and retail sales tomorrow as potential catalysts.
