NYMEX WTI Crude Oil Continues to Exhibit Strength and Buoyancy

The most salient feature of my intermediate-term technical set-up in nearby NYMEX Crude Oil is the fact that after failing to hurdle its 200-Day EMA twice in March and April, the price structure is trading above it now (220-Day EMA is at $41.81), which is a very promising technical signal.

Oil has not traded above its 200-Day EMA since July 2014, when Oil was trading near $100/bbl.

In addition, the 200-Day EMA is flat to upturning, which suggests that the Jan-Apr accumulation period indeed, represents an intermediate-term bottom, that implies potential upside combustion to $48 - $52 next, and possibly $58 - $60 prior to the conclusion of a multi-month recovery rally.
