At our last report into WTI Crude we anticipated the latest trough of the 80 day component, running at around 60-70 days according to Sentient Trader and the time frequency analysis:
From 23rd June:
The 80 day component is well overdue here, with the current iteration spanning 73 days against an average of around 60-70 from the two types of analysis below.
From this incoming 80 day nominal low we can expect another test at the peaks, the 80 day FLD resistance at 115-120 likely the limit as we move into July.
That low occurred on the 22nd of June and subsequently moved up to our target of 115-120. It is significant that price only reached up to just beyond 115 before reversing back in a bearish fashion through the 20 week FLD (short term chart below, green). Therefore, we now have a price target to the downside for the 20 week component, described below and due late August this year.
