• Crude oil is challenging highs not seen since mid-July as the bulls are busy trying to re-establish the main bull trend. 
  • However, the market is evolving in a rising wedge fashion signaling that this might be a crowded trade. If bears start to rotate lower below 70.00 it can induce bulls to take profits and new bears entering the market at this key level. Target to the downside is located near 68.00-68.30 zone (figure and supply/demand level).
  • A sustained breakout above 70.00 would invalidate the bearish bias.
