Oil: We'd Only Buy A Breakout

See Full Report
*Oil has forces pushing it on both sides of the fundamental fence.
*Oil should have dropped more on Saudi comments, but it held.
*There appears to be a $40 floor for now so we'd look for an upside breakout to determine the next move.

We've been bearish on oil (USOOILUWTI) since July 11th. Oil went straight down from there. We pointed out that $40 was a critical level. Since then OPEC worked to organize a meeting to freeze output. The call for a meeting alone apparently caused oil to hold $40 and bounce. $40 now acts as a fundamental support. We have some visibility for limited downside. If oil wants to go up we'll be confirmed on a breakout above $49.50.
Let's first look at the oil chart for some perspective.
Oil is starting to look more bullish than bearish. You can see it broke a downtrend. That said if it were to close above the horizontal line $49.50 we'd have confirmation of an uptrend.
$40 Floor For Now
You can see on the chart above oil bounced hard at $40. Many OPEC producers are struggling with oil now that it's down from $130 and it appears $40 rallied a call to cooperate.
Now that oil lifted, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia ("KSA") appeared to back out. KSA told Reuters late Thursday,
"We don't believe any significant intervention in the market is necessary other than to allow the forces of supply and demand to do the work for us."
