-A triangle formed in Crude from 7/19 to 8/21. Triangles are typically resolved in the direction of the larger trend but breakouts from triangles are usually the final leg of a larger move.

-On 8/28, price took out the 2012 high before closing nearly $3 off of the high (exhaustion?)

-Weakness below 105.51 would increase evidence that the market has turned lower. Until then, recent action may simply be consolidation before the next leg higher. We should have a good idea regarding the next big move in crude SOON.
