HEATING OIL FORMING A BULL TRIANGLE?
ENERGIES: 3/14/11: Higher closes Monday for natural gas and the heating oil while lower for crude oil and the rbob. All of the energies, excluding gas, remain in uptrends long-term but now the crude, heat and rbob are showing some possible topping signs. Also, I’m staying out of the rbob from the long side unless it makes a new contract high eliminating its key reversal from the 7th. Crude has good support below 100(April) while the heating oil continues to look stronger overall and seems to be in a BULL TRIANGLE. The same goes for the rbob altough I won’t re-enter, as mentioned above, at this time. Meanwhile, gas settled higher but sold off sharply from its session’s highs and has a good chance of being lower on Tuesay off of today’s action. BUY SIGNALS FOR CRUDE AND HEATING OIL. SELL SIGNAL FOR NATURAL GAS. CALL FOR DETAILS!
