Talking Points

  • Crude Oil Prices are Channeling Higher
  • WTI May Find Short Term Resistance Under $48.62
  • Channel Support is Found Near $47.80

WTI Crude Oil (CFD: US OIL) prices are currently channeling higher, after bouncing from monthly lows at $41.84. Much of today’s advance in Crude Oil has been predicated on a tightening in oil supply, as well as a general rebound in international markets. As prices rise, traders should be mindful that Crude Oil has still not recovered completely from Friday’s decline. For this reason, it will remain important to monitor short-term momentum and key values of support and resistance.
