Crude Oil gives us an example of this stealth reversal pattern as a perfect “Mirror Image” pathway develops.
The “Rounded Reversal” or “Mirror Image Foldback” is one of my favorite chart patterns yet most traders rarely see it develop.
Crude Oil (NYSEARCA:USO) gives us an example of this stealth reversal pattern as a perfect “Mirror Image” pathway develops.
Let’s look at the chart, study the pattern, and plan the future:
First, let’s start with a few quotes from this week’s Intermarket Strategy Planning Report I published for members:
“We went into last weekend expecting a movement DOWN AWAY FROM the $50 level on divergences and weak price action and – so far – that’s precisely what we’re seeing.”
“Look to play toward the $45.00 level which is best seen on the Daily Chart.”
“Focus your attention now on the $48.00 level which is the rising 50 day EMA – IF price fails to bounce/rally here, THEN we’ll expect a continued sell-swing lower toward the $45.00 pivot.”
Join us as a member for weekend updates and trading strategy for the week ahead like this example.
In terms of the “Rounded Reversal” or “Mirror Image Foldback” Pattern, the trigger to enter short was the break beneath the $50.00 per barrel level.
Very, very aggressive traders could have started small-lot short-selling on the divergences and initial movement down away from our $52.00 per share target (beginning October 19th).
Nevertheless, the pattern suggests additional downside action similar to the upside action that created the left side of the pattern.
The right side of the pattern – what’s tradable – should continue to look similar (as is the case currently) to what we saw on the left.
The vertical black line represents the “Mirror” or Midpoint of the pattern.
