I'm gonna try the ES too. Post your positions on the ES aquarian, could help

Crude oil inventories had a reduction of -4.0M which could help the price of crude above the 90's. The double bottom on the 4H and 1H chart should help the drive up, but for how long?

CL 11-11 is now trading between 89.85 to 90.40.

I have a target @ 90.74
