The Hurdle to Cross: ProShares Ultra DJ-UBS Crude Oil (NYSEARCA:UCO)

On Wednesday shares of ProShares Ultra DJ-UBS Crude Oil (NYSEARCA:UCO) began to bounce back after experiencing an aggressive decline that began near $12.00 per share.  Arguably, the ETF has been weak ever since reaching a year to date high a few months ago, but there has also been a higher low subsequently.

However, on Wednesday the shares also tested a near-term level of resistance, so there is a hurdle to cross in order for prices to go back to where they were.  Our observations tell us that if this hurdle is crossed the midterm channels are likely to change from what currently are weak midterm channels to at least neutral channels, if not upward sloping ones soon thereafter.
