We discuss the many reasons why oil has moved back to $40 and what would indicate the next moves. Tracy explains the benefits of using Market Profile and how it identifies tops and bottoms. She also tells us why $40 oil is not having a major impact on the equities markets. Finally, she reveals a “break-even” graph helps her gauge the fundamentals in the oil industry. Tracy and I had a great technical trading discussion today. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Take care and thank you for listening to the show.
