Oil Prices Suffer First 'Death Cross' Since 2014 Collapse

Tyler Durden's picture

For the first time since September 2014, after which oil prices collapsed almost 75%, Brent and WTI Crude futures both just flashed a 'death cross' signal as the 50-day moving-average crossed below the 200-day moving-average.

The crossover is typically seen a loss of short-term momentum and last occurred in the second half of 2014, when prices collapsed due to oversupply amid surging U.S. shale oil production.


As Bloomberg notes, OPEC and its partners will be hoping their efforts to curb output will be enough to support prices and counteract any fears of growing downside risk.


However, this morning's news of "real" OPEC production may raise more doubts about the cartel's commitment (and going forward, the Qatar debacle won't help).

How long after a death cross do you wait before shorting?  2 days?

Wait for the Fertility Cross, and short it two days in advance.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do... http://bit.ly/2jdTzrM

I push my truck whenever I can. It's good exercise, and prepares me for pushing an oxcart.

Yeah, and with your teeth!  Helps strenthen the jaw for when you have to survive on nuts and berries.

Dont worry the Fed + OPEC & Friends will make sure oil does not go below $40 a barrel. You basically had Russia say thats where its heading. 


What a fixed world we live in... This world is like a pool table... and every fucking pocket is covered by corrupte governments, central banks, syndicates, corporations and individuals... it does not matter how many balls there are on the table, they all end up in the same pockets of these fucking criminal elements. Its all FUCKING FIXED! Free markets... ya right.

Why don't the saudi just print 10 quinttrillion and buy dollars, then buy oil. It is working for the Japanese and American stock market

Bullish - some gas prices are near the $2.10 per gallon mark; TPTB cannot allow that.  Will be up 40-50 cents a gallon by the end of next week.
