Oil Price -- Big Test Ahead

The oil price continues in its first sustained uptrend since the crash. The recent action has seen
WTI crude take out previous highs so far this year, and oil is now headed up to an RSI overbought
for the first time since Jun.2014. The strong positive price action for crude is consistent with a
typical seasonal spurt  over Mar. / Apr. in anticipation of a rise in gasoline demand. If the oil price
follows the conventional seasonal pattern, it will top out shortly and not see sustainable strength
again until the end of Jul. '15. Traders currently long the market need to consider carefully
whether to hold those positions through the early summer. WTIC Daily
