Looks poor but watch the key levels

Published Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

Readers may be forgiven for concluding by yesterday afternoon that I had done my morning analysis with the charts upside down. I was constructive, however the market collapsed and we witnessed price carnage – apologies. Post mortems are pretty dull affairs at the best of times, but there were two vital ingredients to yesterday’s collapse that are relevant – firstly RBOB had completed a price cycle in the rally to the 34 day MA, and secondly all positive bets were off as soon as the contracts moved below the s/t MAs. The rest is history, and much more relevant is the question – what now? Today is going to be very dangerous. The collapse below the s/t MAs green lighted objectives back to the recent lows. These were to 92.50 WTI; 101.07 Brent; 280.80 Heat; 251.86 RBOB; and 852.50 Gasoil. WTI and RBOB have yet to hit these critical levels and are still above. The rest have closed below and have further targets to 99.67 Brent; 276.40 Heat; and 834.25 Gasoil. In order for further downside to be valid the contracts must stay below the following levels – 93.72 WTI; 101.07 Brent; 280.80 Heat; 255.61 RBOB; and 852.50 Gasoil.
