Looking Ahead to Today by Reflecting Back at Wednesday’s Price Action


EIA GAS STORAGE report is released later this morning. Higher closes for for heating oil and the rbob while lower for crude oil and natural gas but all not too far from unchanged. Although the crude, heat and rbob are still in uptrends overall, they were hurt by the last Friday’s and Monday’s action still managing to hold their respective support areas as seen below. Gas closed lower this time and, while making a key reversal on April 1st, it looks like it’s in a BEAR TRIANGLE poised to continue moving lower overall. BUY SIGNALS FOR CRUDE, HEAT AND THE RBOB. CALL FOR DETAILS!
