All indicators are moving lower, there is about to be a cross over to the downside on the weekly MACD which is a very strong sell signal.
Crude Oil 1 Hour Chart
Bear flag structure, and possibly an ABC corrective rally into the 61% FIB retracement. There has been a 5 wave decline and a counter-trend rally and a bear flag breakdown on the shorter time frame. This is providing the green light to enter the position. Currently, pricing on MT5 providers and Tradingview is different. Ensure your stop loss is above the most recent swing high.
