Elaine Levin, president at Powerhouse LLC, a Washington DC-based
trading and risk management firm, says “On Friday the market made a new low, but it doesn’t have a lot of momentum behind it and Elliott Wave aside I am looking at momentum and overbought/oversold signals, and I have bullish divergence and am about to get a crossover on my stochastics.”

“We have just not had the follow through to the downside despite making new lows. It has not been the most robust sell off. The shorts have no conviction. There has been no follow through,”

“David Thompson from futures broker Powerhouse said the larger-than-expected gasoline build and the weak demand numbers are making RBOB the weakest performer post-data. The front-month contract likely will test the May 5 low, he said.”

“PowerHouse, agrees that hedging activity from consumers is picking up along all parts of the pricing curve.

Her advice to clients for diesel and jet fuel is simple: These are the cheapest prices seen in a dozen years for these products.
