OVX, CBOE Crude Oil Volatility Index (INDEX)

I rarely look at the crude oil volatility index, but I may start to use the OVX a little more frequently. The idea is the same as any other volatility index, but it is strictly related to crude oil.  Any potential future move down in the index, would indicate a bullish phase in oil is coming. The reverse would be true if we think an upward spike in the OVX is going to happen.

We can see the recent wild spike to the upside, and then a reversal and a crash to about a 4 year low. At this time we are sitting at the 21.32 price level, and any further upside would indicate that oil is going to have a bearish move, or bull market correction. At 14 we have a huge double bottom, but if this oil bull market is going to persist, then the OVX should crash well below the 2014 low.

I would just be guessing as to how low the OVX will eventually end up, at the peak of the next big oil bullish run. I love even Fibonacci numbers and at 21,  we are dead on to a Fibonacci. 13, 8, and 5 would be the next logical sequence lows, but how long that will take could be several years or more.

The oil bull market is not over, as chances are good that oil is heading into another correction. Last week saw a huge move in gold, silver and oil, and any oil correction will now happen in early 2018.
