Oil bounced yesterday after news of the Israel and Hamas conflict. This allowed oil to touch the highs of the range it has been in over several weeks. Oil has gone no where lately as evident of the consolidation patter on the chart. Oil has stayed between 85 and 87 during this time, but the range for is from 84.05 and 87.46.
Possible Break Out: Oil appears it is ready to test these highs again and possible break out. For Oil to breakout it would need to get above 87.05, which is the more immediate term resistance level. A true breakout would occur at 87.46 and this would allow Oil to head north to about 91. The conflict in the middle east and dollar that is nearing resistance could be the bump oil needs to get over this resistance.
Hourly Triangle: A sloppy ascending triangle has formed on Oil as well which uses the resistance levels above to form the top of the triangle.
