WTIC: Possible Temporary Bottom Formed

Crude oil prices have been dropping in the last few days. It closed at USD48.40 yesterday, just a dollar shy off  its intermediate uptrend line, SS. With the sighting of a hammer, there is a good chance the bottom -at least a temporary one - is near.

 Many of our O&G stocks dropped quite drastically in the past few days- mirroring the fall in crude oil prices. My favorite, SKPetro even broke uptrend line. It tested the support from the horizontal line at RM1.75.

Hibiscus, the smallish O&G stock, dropped back to its uptrend line, SS at RM0.40.

If WTIC can stage a recovery next few days, our beaten down O&G stocks could be attractive buys today.

For those who are curious about the outlook of CPO, my chart (CPO prices in USD) tells me that we are likely to see further weakness next few weeks and a test of the support at USD500 before recovery set in.
