Crude oil traded to my target support area, with a low of $85.69 Tuesday, so where's it headed now?
This market heads into a day that can be easily swung by economic optimism or pessimism complimented by weekly crude oil inventories, which were larger than expected. With a stronger U.S. dollar Wednesday, there will be continued pressure on oil, as well as on commodities in general. Right now, it appears as though $88 is the battleground level for oil. Above it, oil simply cannot seem to find a bid. On bullish news, it will still be very tough for this market to climb back.
