Oil Bullish or Bearish

Recommended Posts

What do you see Oil in next 3 months ? Bullish or Bearish ? Is Oil really heading towards 20 $ a barrel as major research firms of the world predict.

 

Your view please.

pc speak =

“After previous two weeks’ rather high inventory numbers (7.8M) we should see the inventories at 3.1M level. However, the actual numbers have lately deviated quite strongly from the analyst expectations.”

interpretation of the pc speak = “we’re trying to help talk these inventory numbers down… but the freakn tanks are filling up and running over…”

...close to B.E. on long scale trade (previously discussed in the Gold Bullish or Bearish thread)

 

REGARDLESS - will be 'hedging' up aggressively on short side over the next couple of weeks...

 

I’m not always right... but when I’m wrong, I’m still right ;)

 

(ps it's not apparent, but you can accurately project humility here... not hubris)

:cool:

As noted earlier, have been building a long scale trade in far far out CL futures... in the green now...

Planning to start more heavily locking it in with shorts on closer month contracts on approaches to ~46...

 

...will still build this scale trade for a couple more years ...

planning to add to it all the way down into the low teens...

 

:roll eyes:

btw - scale trades hog up capital

and

:helloooo:

take a long time ...

 

:missy:

not in my wheel house really...

Crude oil is the new widow maker. It trades heavier than a wet dawg in a New York thunderstorm. Rallies have no legs and its seems the only bid these days are the shorts with their family jewels caught in a vice grip.

 

Fwiw I’m still in this same long scale trade.

Same plan. Have capital allocated for a ‘crash’ in energy prices... which may never happen...:missy:

 

fwiw - On many levels this is a peak technology / peak infrastructure play more than it is a peak supply or peak production play . Most would equate technology / infrastructure with production. In this case, I think it's better to seg them out...

 

Getting exasperated with rolling it every quarter - but hey, that’s scale trading...

 

'Hedging' tactics have changed since last post from selected / fixed level using stops underneath to overboughts using 'limit's above... but already looking at cycles for when to shift tactics back to fixed level / stops underneath ...

 

Average net long price is down to ~ 34 - after 'successfully' trading/ (hedging and lifting) 7 of the last 4 :confused: :rofl: good downdrafts using close month contracts.

Back to work...

 

to ‘hedge’ CLV18 longs, incrementing trailing stop .10 -.30 per day with CLG18 contracts. Currently they trail about 2.50 under yesterday’s CLG18 lows ...

 

the current 'joke' around here is what how much smaller, unleveraged positions in btc have absolutely kicked this position's ass the whole way through...

:roll eyes:

 

:missy:

crammed most trailing stops to just under this weeks CLG18 low ... to ‘hedge’ CLV18 longs

 

(starting to 'imagine' an exit to this trade and starting to build a short scale trade in CL - but don't know yet when or where I would begin... summerish? mid 70's ish???.

just my imagination :doh: :)

... CL "doesn't even know me"... time to do some cycle and resonance work...)

How many currencies are, in effect, mere derivatives of the USD?

For example, the new petroyuan - (beyond being some corrupt chinese exchange startup entrepreneurs’ wet dreams,) meaningless until they take off the peg to the dollar.

Wars and rumors of wars... and... fiats and rumors of fiats...


‘Somebody’ wants 90 to 100 barrel... but


 I’m moving my hedge stops up under this run in CL ... these recent up waves appear corrective, ie not impulsive, to me...

    • USDCHF Bounces Off Lower Prices On Correction.   USDCHF bounces off lower prices on correction the past week. This has opened the door for more gain in the new week. Resistance resides at the 0.9800 level. Above here, resistance lies at the 0.9850 level and then the 0.9900 level. Further out, resistance comes in at the 0.9950 level. On the downside, support is seen at the 0.9750 level with a turn below here opening the door for more decline towards the 0.9700 level. And then the 0.9650 level. Further down, support resides at the 0.9600 level. All in all, USDCHF remains biased to the upside on further corrective strength.    
    • Can I ask what broker are you using for trading oil?
    • Hey, I am new to this. Anyone use software like this?? Is it legit?? 
    • Extend Trend Lines is a VTL Client-side indicator for elongating the trend lines on the chart to the last bar. Traders usually draw trend lines on the chart and use them as support resistance levels. When a trend line breakout happens, it is the beginning of a new trend. One issue with trend lines drawn manually on the chart is that they do not get elongated when new bars form on the chart. It should be manually adjusted with new bars.  Extend Trend Lines VTL Indicator takes care of this situation. It automatically adjusts all trend lines on the chart to the last bar. It monitors the trend lines on each new bar and adjust them.  This is useful when the trader opens the terminal on a new day and the old trend lines are short and need adjustments.   ExtendTrendLines.zip
    • Previous day high low is a Client Side VTL indicator that draws the last day’s high, low and today’s open on the chart. When day trading, the previous day’s high and low are important reference points or support resistance levels. In a bullish market price breaks above the previous day’s high early in the day and continue to trade above that level.  In bear markets, price break below the previous day’s low early in the day and continue to trade below that level.  Trading ranges form when price fails to break the previous day’s high or low successfully.  This info alone can improve your trading results as this give you a clear vision of what is likely to happen today. Breakout trading strategies work best when price is above or below yesterday’s range. Trend following strategies also work best in this situation.  When price is inside yesterday range, counter trend strategies work better. Oscillators like RSI and Stochastics work best in this situation.   Prev_Day_High_Low.zip
