Commodities Essential - July 19, 2011

Alert: crude oil supported by technicals in near-term.

Let’s add UCO now. 

The market doesn’t seem keen on risk aversion; investors want to keep playing. Although I lean toward being neutral/bearish on crude oil over the next 3-6 months, I think the technical pattern is shaping up to suggest crude oil bounces higher from here over the next several days. I recommend adding UCO (ProShares DJ-AIG Ultra Crude Oil Fund) at the market to play for a short-term breakout that could happen soon.  

[Additional details on this set-up will follow in the weekly issue to be sent later today.]

Trade Essentials.
