NYMEX reverses on economic news, to end day higher

Posted by Mark Pszeniczny on May 24, 2010 8:36:00 PM

The early morning session had all the makings of another big down day as news spread that China may be scaling back some of their economic recovery plans. And fears mount that Japan is not too far behind. The reverse came as existing home sales reported a better than expected increase in units. The dramatic sell off in the last few week has brought out the bottom feeders and judging by the chart below, they appear to be ready to turn this around. We had pinpointed the 1.8850 level as a possible bottom and so far that support level has held, this goes all the way back until the first week of February. The real question is there enough steam in the train to move south even more after the two day dead cat bounce. Even with the Dow soft, I tend to think that the 45 cents lost in value in the last two plus weeks has shaken the tree enough prior to the summer. At the end of the day Crude managed to stay above $70 closing up .17 to $70.21, RBOB added .0096 to $1.9708 and HEAT gained .0026 to $1.8993.
