Analyst Paul Ebeling of takes a look at Oil Prices

Crude Oil could challenge $80 bbl again

Crude Oil has been in free-fall, it broke down more Wednesday after breaking Key support on Tuesday.

December Crude futures on NYMEX were down 0.95 or 1.1% to 85.72, this 85 mark is important, if it does not hold, 80 Crude Oil is next.

Take a look at the chart going back 6 months see below.


The price level of 85 bbl for WTI is a crucial mark. When Crude Oil tanked in May you can see that 85 became the Key area in June. When prices fell under 83, they quickly went down to under 80 before finding the bottom and stabilizing.

Normally folks would be happy that Crude Oil prices are declining, the problem is that Crude Oil prices are sliding due to demand destruction, not supply issues. This is due to a continuing concern about the global economy.

Watch trading in Crude Oil Thursday because it is at a critical mark now. If prices do not stabilize then 80 bbl could well be next, and lower. Stay tuned…
