USDWTI - Triple Top Attempt

The price of WTI Crude oil has rallied in 2016 from a low near 26 to a high just above 42 this week. However, as we can see in the 1H chart, WTI Crude retreated after cracking 42 for the 3rd time this week, forming essentially a triple top.

If we see a break below 41, and the 1H RSI falls below 40, we should consider a possible bearish pullback, like we saw in the latter part of March.

If oil price holds above 40, it would be a strong sign that it is actually turning bullish, or at least establishing a base. Otherwise, we should anticipate a possible retreat towards 36, and more aggressively, the 34.30-34.50 support/resistance pivot area seen in the daily chart.

Now, if price holds above 40, or even if it goes to 38 and bounces up, then, the bullish outlook has the 43.35 support/resistance pivot area in sight in the short-term.
