Crude (WTIC) and Corporate High Yield (HYG) Charts Show Steep Falling Resistance in Place (weekly chart)

In the above weekly closing price chart, WTIC has bounced off support (green) at about $30 but is still within a steep falling channel (blue).  Crude may have some room to rally based on this chart after it managed to climb back to close above $30 last week.

The above weekly closing price for HYG shows that long-term weekly support was broken (blue) and that HYG has rallied a bit back to just below possible dual resistance posed by this former support and a steep falling resistance line (dashed red).  A break through and above these lines could be a positive (at least short-term) for high yield bonds.
