Stockcharts does not have intraday prices but it does have nice looking charts. The chart shown does not have today’s plunge.

There could be a bounce at any time, but technically speaking, a bounce from the $33-$40 level seems more likely.

What’s Going On?

  1. The US and Russia are pumping record amounts of oil.
  2. Trump granted a number of nations exemptions on his Iran sanctions
  3. OPEC infighting
  4. Fallout from the brutal killing of a Saudi dissident journalist
  5. Slowing global economy
