SINGAPORE, May 8 (Reuters) - U.S. oil may break a resistance at $62.11 per barrel and rise to $63.06, as its bounce from the May 6 low of $60.04 looks incomplete.
The bounce consists of three waves. The third wave labeled c is capable of traveling to $63.06. Strategically, this target will be confirmed when oil breaks an immediate target at $62.11, the 61.8 percent projection level of a preceding wave -c-.
However, bulls are advised not to take much fancy to this extended bounce, which may be limited to $63.06. The uptrend from $42.36 could have reversed, as suggested by the break below a rising trendline.
A break below $60.88, the 23.6 percent retracement of the uptrend from $42.36 to $66.60, could confirm the continuation of the downtrend from $66.06 towards $58.85.
On the daily chart, oil is riding on a wave C, the third wave of a big three-wave cycle from the October 3, 2018 high of $76.90. A projection analysis suggests a target at $58.45, the 23.6 percent level, which may not be fulfilled so soon, as oil is consolidating around $61.56.
