December 2nd, 2006
The seasonal low in Crude Oil appears to be in place. The higher low in the CCI(20) index followed by a move through zero should be the precursor to a five to eight week rally, a pause and then a continuation to the upside into March-April.
Since 1983, the level of the lower Keltner Band has provided a major support once the 50-week moving average was violated. The ensuing rallies have managed to retrace 50% or marginally more of the break since the last rally above the upper Keltner Band. The failed rally into August 11th ($77.70) becomes our measuring point for the current retracement. We can assume that the initial rally will carry to $67, but not beyond $70.
As noted on November 21st, the oil stocks were already putting in higher lows, creating a bullish divergence and ready to pop.
