Crude Oil has been moving higher of late, putting it at a price point that looks to be important from a long-term perspective.
Below looks at Crude Oil over the past 10-years and how it is facing a key breakout test on Halloween:
As mentioned above, Crude Oil is kissing the underside of long-term falling channel (1) and 2017 highs at the same time at (3). It humbly appears to the Power of the Pattern to be a very important price test for Crude.
Below looks at the pattern in Exxon (XOM) over the past few years:
Exxon hit 7-year support recently at (1) and the rally of late has it testing the top of a falling channel and highs earlier this year at (3).
What Crude and Exxon does at these key breakout tests look to be very important for the lagging Energy sector.
