News coming out of London Overnight:
News coming out of London was nothing but bullish this morning as we prepare for the opening-bell here in the United States. We have a day filled with important news to watch today.
With the September FOMC Meeting on September 17th, we know that Friday’s Non-Farm Payroll news is going to be a pivotal part of the decision to begin the discussion on ‘tapering’. Today we have four (4) separate news reports that will all be used in Friday’s Non-Farm Payroll report. We will be watching today’s news very closely for clues to see what Friday’s report will look like.
Focal Points this morning:
· G20 Meeting begins in Russia

Crude Oil Analysis:
|Crude Oil Anchor Chart 1|
|Crude Oil anchor chart 2|
The same is true on the 1800-tick anchor chart this morning. We can see very similar examples of support and resistance levels, with some added levels at 106.52, 105.97, 105.20 and 104.74 to use as support for our short trades today.
|Crude Oil VIP Chart|
Crude Oil is trading in the middle of the range from Wednesday on our 30-minute VIP Chart. We can see a relatively-average trading-range coming out of London, moving just short of $1.00 from 3am EST. This trading-range tells us to expect some good trading opportunities this morning because the range will lead to increased volatility for us to use in our trades.
|Crude Oil Entry Chart|
Our 600-tick entry chart shows us an easy clue to get us selling short this morning. Remember, the anchor charts are showing bearish market sentiment so we look for this bear price-channel to provide resistance at the highs and we will be looking to sell these highs using our wave-pattern-short with a profit-target down at 106.80 later in the session.
Crude Oil PIT Session Price levels show us a nice wide trading range that we will look forward to trading today.
