13,500 was resistance on the way up, so it is now support on the way down. The reversal of roles is an important concept in technical analysis.

  1. WTI was able to hold major support at $35
  2. Breakout above the 40-week (200-day) moving average
  3. Breakout above resistance of $40
  4. $40  is now the current  support zone
  5. $45 is the current resistance zone
  6. $50 is the intermediate target and major resistance zone
WTI will test resistance around $45

I published this daily candlestick chart for IBB to highlight a couple of principles in technical analysis. First, the reversal of roles is an important concept in technical analysis. The $270 resistance point is now support. Second, a retest of the breakout point is common before the stock resumes the near-term uptrend. But, these are guidelines. Everything in technical analysis is about probabilities. A break below support of $270 would change the whole technical picture.

Beginning in 2013, you can see the start of the divergences in the TSX and Dow. In 2015, the divergence accelerated as oil prices collapsed. Major support for the Dow is around 16,000. Major support for the TSX Index is around 12,000.

The near-term uptrend for WTI failed at 39 so this is the current reference point for the resistance level. WTI dropped 1.74% today to close at 36.72. The 36 level is a tentative support level that would trigger sell orders if crude breaks below this point. But, the major support level is 35. A Break below 35 would trigger heavy selling and a test of the February lows would come into play.

Reference my chart analysis for WTI on March 2, 2016 when 35 was major resistance for the near-term uptrend. Because of the reversal of roles, 35 is now major support.
