  • Crude oil finally broke below 66.30 July 18 swing low as bears are now testing the 65.71 support.
  • Bears objective is to keep oil below 66.30 and the 67.95 swing high in order to keep WTI under pressure and reach 65.00 figure, 64.60 May 28 low and ultimately to 62.40 June 18 low.  
  • On the flips side, bulls see the current situation as a bull flag (480-minute chart) and are seeing the current sell-off as a buying opportunity. If bulls are able to bring the market back above 66.30 then more consolidation in the bull flag can be expected.
