Crude oil saw a dramatic correction after the Hostage situation in Iran was peacefully resolved. While that is good news it shows that tensions in the region are as high as they have ever been. Crude oil has just today completed an almost perfect 50% fibonacci retracement. At the same time we can see through the Commitment of traders (COT) report that funds and large traders are aggressively long while small traders remain short.
Crude oil looks poised to run back up to test the recent highs just above 68. This is the lowest risk way we could find to be long an at the money call option for the next 30+ days while getting an attractive risk reward ratio.
