  • Crude oil pushed as high as 70.70 so far this Tuesday, just one tick shy from the 70.71 resistance, the November 17, 2014 low.  
  • Crude oil has been grinding higher in a wedge shape (dotted line) above the bearish upper trendline in the last three days suggesting that bulls might  actually be in a bull trap.  
  • However, a bull breakout above 74.71 should lead to bear capitulation and the market can spike to 75.27 the current 2018 high.
