When I went to fill up at the pump this weekend I was shocked, gas popped up $0.30 a gallon! So the increase in Crude Oil is having a direct impact in the price at the pump.

The oil ETF (NYSE: USO) has had a significant breakout in the last two sessions. The short-term weighs quite bullish for Crude, especially since $USO was able to finish the day above the 20-day moving average. The last time I saw that was in September. That event was the short lived and right around the time the slide in crude began.

While I am bullish on Crude’s breakout, I want to be clear that this is a short-term signal as there is work to be done before Crude would be considered in recovery mode.

As always, have a great trading day!
