Down another 4 percent today after breaking below the falling wedge (red lines).  Not a great start to the week for crude oil.  

Will it hit $25?  If so, will support hold? We will have to see.

UPDATE 1/15/16:

The above chart shows that resistance was successfully tested, the falling wedge (solid red lines) broke and $WTIC quickly fell.  The next apparent support line, which may form the base of a large channel (solid blue lines) is at about $25/barrel.  Coincidentally this is also the base of steeply falling channel on the weekly chart here.

The daily chart above shows that crude oil ($WTIC - spot price) has been moving down within a falling wedge (solid lines) since mid-2014.

In addition, after recently moving up off the base of the wedge, $WTIC is now up against possible long-term resistance (formerly support - the lower dashed line).

Eventually the wedge will break since the lines are converging.  When the wedge breaks, will $WTIC reverse its relatively steep downward trend or continue its decline in a precipitous manner?  Stay tuned.
