Crude Oil Still Double Topping

This double top is so close to call that I switched back to a potential zigzag bullish phase that can work in a diagonal 5th wave. Gasoline is far from reaching any potential double top,  so we have a good divergence between the two types of commodities. There is not much we can add to the short term picture except that oil can head south right along with the stock market. The commercial traders don’t instill any great urgency to pile into this extended bullish push, as they have been net short for some time already. $65.50 is the price to beat with this very busy June contract. Once mid June rolls around, I will then switch to the December contract which is just as busy as this June contract is.

The December contract is also much lower in price by about $4. It would be far more bullish, if the December contract is higher in price!

The Gold/Oil ratio has not made any real dramatic moves as it has been averaging around the 20.5:1 ratio. This ratio must keep compressing otherwise it has a high probability of starting to spread. A spreading Gold/Oil ratio would then show us that oil is getting cheaper when we use the Troy gold ounce as a measuring tool.
