Crude Oil Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that Crude Oil is now close to its 20 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. The clearest trend exists on the 90 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going down, exists on the 14 day timeframe. If you’re looking to trade the primary trend, this may be a good opportunity to buy dips created by the counter trend. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 30 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. For another vantage point, consider that Crude Oil’s price has gone up 15 of the previous 30 trading days.

Is crude oil under-developing Nigeria? | Dailytrust

There is no doubt that Nigeria’s crude oil has immensely contributed in its growth and development even with the existence of moribund refineries….Even though there are investments and advancements in diverse sectors of the Nigerian economy, there is no doubt that Nigeria’s overdependence on crude oil surpasses its faith in the growth and development of other aspects of the economy….Nigeria too can do the same….Once the Nigerian economy is diversified and key sectors are developed, the reliance on crude oil will drastically reduce and even if the oil gets all used up in a few centuries to come, there will be other sectors that will generate revenue and export earnings for the country.
