The daily chart of oil above shows that oil bottomed around July 2017. It formed a classic ascending triangle bottom. It also formed 2 more ascending triangles which helped to absorb supply from the overhead resistance in the past. Oil was making higher highs and higher lows which are characteristics of an uptrend.

It is now above its rising 20 MA, 50 MA and 200 MA. All this points to a strong daily uptrend in oil prices and therefore, traders can expect more upside in oil prices. Recently it made another bullish chart pattern by breaking above another ascending triangle.
