I was suspicious about my March peak, which I now counted out with an expanded top, followed by two sets of 5 waves down. All my degrees are being used up and I will not longer count out smaller than the 15th degree. When I consistently run into the 15th degree level, and still see a few smaller wave sets, then I might have to look at a higher degree, but so far there may not be the need. The bottom of April 6th is now a diagonal 4th wave bottom. Just today it is getting close to the top of my trend line, so another correction should be due. Fears and uncertainty have arrived in the oil market and we can thank Trumps Tweets for that.
Since the March bottom we have been in a “C” wave bullish phase, and this oil move is a prime example what can and does happen in “C” wave bull markets.
How much more crude oil will run is uncertain, but the end could also be near. Even with all these wild swings the Gold/Oil ratio hasn’t changed that much and is still bouncing around the 20.29:1 range. Eventually I would like to see the Gold/Oil ratio expanded closer to the 30:1 ratio, but that is not going to happen for quite sometime yet.
Remember, as fast as oil has gone up, it can come down just as fast. You will not be safe in this bullish trend for very long. With this move it just extends the “C” wave in Minor degree.
I’m starting to mention that crude has a huge Cycle degree Megaphone in the works, between the Cycle degree wave 3 top and a Cycle degree wave bottom, which once completed should produce yet another rocking bull market in oil. This may still be 2 3 years away so don’t get too excited just yet. Megaphones have open cones, but wedges and even Scalene triangles have mostly closed cones. I will start calling Megahope patterns by the size of their degree levels, as Cycle degree Megaphones can produce 5 waves in Primary degree. The US dollar also has a Cycle degree Megaphone in progress, and I think there are more out there I haven’t discovered yet.
