No resource is greater in need and shorter in supply than crude oil.
And with the stock market still challenged, crude oil is also gaining trader appeal right now as a viable hedge.
But the key to profitable trades is to be in at the right entry level as well as being ready to exit at the right levels.
So today, let’s take a look at capitalizing on a potential bull market run in the crude oil futures contract (CL) as this week shapes up…
The Crude Oil Trade Setup
Here’s how the chart shows the potential gain in CL setting up…
And here’s how I see this week’s developing idea setting up…
The crude oil (CL) hourly time frame is in an up channel, with the market near the bottom of the channel.
If support holds, it is expected the market to push bullish towards the top of the channel at 123.77, about 1,625 ticks above the market.
Entry: Counter trend line break bullish in the buy zone above the bottom of the channel.
Stop: In the sell zone below the low before the entry.
Limit: 123.77 Once or if the market enters into the buy zone.
As long as the market stays in the buy zone, it will be a good idea to turn to the five minute time frame and look for Tunnel Trader / Destination Trader / Chandelier Trader long ideas towards 123.77.
