Last month, there was a sharp decline in crude oil price from well above $40.00 against the US Dollar. The price broke many supports near $35.00 before it found support near $33.50. Looking at the 4-hours chart of XTI/USD, the price started a strong recovery wave from the $33.51 low. There was a break above the $35.00 and $36.00 resistance levels. The price gained pace above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $41.63 high to $33.51 low. There was also a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $37.70 on the same chart. Finally, the price climbed above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $41.63 high to $33.51 low. The next major resistance is near $38.50, $39.20, the 100 simple moving average (4-hours), and the 200 simple moving average (4-hours). A clear break above $38.50 and $39.20 could set the pace for a strong increase above $40.00. The next major resistance is near the $41.50 level. If there is no upside break above the 100 simple moving average (4-hours) could start a fresh decline. An initial support is near the $37.20 and $37.00 levels. A downside break below the $37.00 level may perhaps lead the price back towards the $35.00 support.
