With a decline of more than 22% since early May, it certainly has not been a good few weeks for the price of crude oil (WTI). As a result of the steep drop, crude oil’s 50-day moving average (DMA) dropped below its 200-DMA for the first time since August 2011.
Since 1982, oil's 50-day moving average has dropped below its 200-day moving average 20 other times, and in seven of those periods both the 50 and 200-DMAs were both falling as they currently are now. Earlier today, we sent out a report to Bespoke Premium clients highlighting the performance of crude oil over the following week, month, three months, and six months when the death cross has occurred.
