“Prices have given fresh breakout from the sideways to negative action of last few weeks. There is formation of bullish candlestick pattern with increase in momentum in last week which suggests that uptrend should continue as long as we do not see exhaustion signs.
As shown in 60 mins chart, as of now prices have completed wave c of Triangle pattern and wave d is ongoing. The acting of last session indicates that sideways action is ongoing and post these prices should move higher.
In short, on downside 3130 will continue to act as important support and move above 3240 will suggest that move towards 3300 has started.”

“Crude showed high volatility. Prices moved higher towards 3310 level however post that reversed on downside towards 3250 and made spike at 3310 level. During such volatility one should trade with strict risk management.
As shown in 60 mins chart, prices are intact in upward moving channel and prices have taken out previous wave (x) area with strong momentum. This will keep short term trend positive. However looking at the volatility some consolidation cannot be ruled out. On downside 3190 is the support.
In short, Crude trend is positive but trade with strict risk management. 3190 is the support. On upside prices can move towards 3350 level.”
Happened: We took a bullish stand on Crude as soon as 3200 was taken out with strong momentum. Post that prices managed to sustain above the pivot support areas and achieved our mentioned target of 3350 level. Will it continue to rally? What should be the trading strategy from here on?
