Above 44.54 USD the WTI CRUDE OIL is heading toward 55.37 USD over the short term. Below 44.54 USD the movement would reverse and then correct toward 41.83 USD.
The MACD is negative but is situated above its signal line: the trend is changing. Now, the MACD must clear zero for the rise to continue in the coming days. The main indicator of the movement's strength (RSI) shows that the technical situation is quite healthy, as it is not overbought. The Stochastics indicators are not giving any clear signals for the coming days. The volumes traded are less than the average volumes over the last 10 days.
The commodity is oriented to the downside. It is under its 50-day moving average located at 57.16. The 20-day moving average (lower than the 50-day moving average) is maintaining the prices under medium-term sell pressure. Our first support is at 47.25 USD and the next is at 44.54 USD; the resistances, located at 55.37 USD and at 58.08 USD must be exceeded for the trend to undergo a reversal.
Moving Averages (MA20 & MA50)
Moving averages are calculated by the addition of the closing price of the N last sessions divided by the number of sessions considered. They can be used to track daily, weekly, or monthly patterns. DayGraph uses 20 and 50 periods. Moving averages provide a good indication of the whole trend affecting an underlying. Reversing situations can be found on the upside and on the downside. Moving averages can constitute supports or resistances by themselves for spot prices.
The MACD (Moving Average Convergence / Divergence) reflects a difference between moving averages and thus makes reference to the ascendancy or not of the mid-term relatively to the short term. DayGraph uses 26 and 12 periods. Moreover, so as to estimate the variations of the trends, an auxiliary indicator (named signal line) is formed. It is based on an exponential average of the MACD on 9 periods. The advantage of this indicator is triple:
RSI is the most popular speed indicator because it is one of the most relevant ones in localizing overbought and oversold periods depending on the investment horizon. A bounded indicator, the RSI calculates the relationship between the average of ups and downs for the days of the period under consideration with a mathematical approximation. Day traders use a 5-minute RSI, monthly market investors use a 5 or 9-day RSI, portfolio managers monitor the RSI for 14 days and some investment funds would even go to the RSI 34. The longer the RSI is, the less the overbought and oversold thresholds are distanced (20/80 for a 9-day RSI, 30/70 for an RSI 14). It also gives excellent divergence signals. DayGraph uses a 14-day RSI.
With a design close to that of the RSI, the stochastic indicators use a greater number of variables (highs and lows for the day). The slow %D used smoothes the variations of the base indicator that is too volatile. Paradoxically, the false signals are often more numerous than for the RSI. The main contribution compared to the latter is still notable though: when the stochastics remain stuck in an overbought area (above 75%) for several weeks, it is recommended not to follow the overbought indications of all the other indicators.
Bollinger bands are trading bands (upper and lower boundary lines) plotted at 2 standard deviation levels above and below a moving average. DayGraph uses 20 periods. Bollinger bands offer a measure of volatility and relative low and high, the bands widen during volatile markets and narrow when volatility decreases. They can provide strong thresholds: resistance for the upper band and support for the lower band.

Secondary market warning
SG Option Europe, Societe Generale or any affiliate thereof is the only market maker of the products. Under normal conditions SG Option Europe, Societe Generale or any affiliate will endeavour to provide a market-making service, which involves giving the right market value and ensuring liquidity, both when buying and selling a financial product under specific conditions. Such arrangements may be temporarily or indefinitely curtailed as a result of technical problems within companies of the Societe Generale group or the London Stock Exchange or data vendors or telecommunications carriers, or in the event of pending announcements by or difficulties in procuring information on underlying companies. We are committed to ensure our product prices are always broadcast, however due to factors often out of our control e.g. technical issues with providers' feeds, there may be occasions whereby our products' prices are not broadcast. In such events, we will always endeavour to do whatever is in our power to resolve these issues promptly.
As a result of this secondary market risk, you may find it difficult or impossible in certain extreme circumstances to sell the relevant product or may be offered a price that is significantly less than you paid for it.
Leveraged returns are a major advantage of Short & Long Leveraged Exchange Traded Products but can also work against investors. Investors in Short & Long Leveraged Exchange Traded Products should be aware that, if the underlying instrument to the product moves in the opposite direction to that anticipated by investors, the losses incurred by the product will be greater in percentage terms than those incurred by the underlying itself. The prices of Short & Long Leveraged Exchange Traded Products can therefore be volatile. Short & Long Leveraged Exchange Traded Products have a limited life, as denoted by the expiry date of each issue. After this date, the products can no longer be traded or exercised. As the product is reset on a daily basis, your capital could erode very quickly following a continued succession of positive or negative performance of the underlying asset. Investors who wish to hold their position overnight will pay a commission in the same way as they would with a fund.
As a result of corporate actions such as rights issues, share splits, share buy backs and take over and mergers, strike levels of the products may be adjusted to reflect such activity. The reason for this is to ensure that investors in the products are not disadvantaged or gain undue benefit by equity adjustments. When such a change takes place, if you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us. Further information regarding the calculation of the changes can be supplied upon request.
Nothing in this website constitutes advice on the merits of buying, or selling a particular investment or exercising any right conferred by the products described. Societe Generale does not offer investment advice in respect of these products.
Societe Generale or its affiliates may from time to time have a position, or material interest in the products described in this website or the investments underlying them.
