OPTIONS PLAY: CRUDE OIL Makes New Low For The Move

Stock-Markets / Options & Warrants Dec 12, 2009 - 04:36 PM GMT

Stock-Markets

CRUDE OIL has traded lower 7 out of the last 8 days. See my previous blog post for more details: http://mckinneytrading.blogspot.com/..


MY ANALYSIS:
Fundamentally, the supply-side issues seem to be in control here. Simply put, there is a large suppy. Despite consumption on the rise in China, a better than expexcted reatail sales number, and an uptick in consumer sentiment CRUDE OIL traded lower.
Technically, while this market may be slightly oversold CRUDE OIL is in a SUPER-TREND LOWER. See daily chart below.

WE ARE BUYING PUT SPREADS LOOKING FOR LOWER PRICES IN CRUDE OIL!
