Crude Oil Prices Spike Lower as WTI Crude Breaks Below $65

Crude Oil Prices Spike Lower as WTI Crude Breaks Below $65

Justin McQueen, Analyst

Oil Price Analysis and News

  • Oil Prices Spike Lower with WTI breaching $65
  • Brent drops to support at $72.75

WTI and Brent crude futures have both come under notable selling pressure in recent trade with WTI breaking below the $65 to lows of $64.30, while Brent crude futures are down over 1.3%, with losses curbed by the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at $72.75. Oil prices have eased in recent sessions with OPEC members stating that they would replace the drop in Iranian crude exports, while the latest US oil inventory data showed a weekly build (Full story). Consequently, Brent crude has dropped near 3% since failing to test the $75 handle. However, with the fundamental outlook little changed over the past 24hours, the recent move looks to be technical, given that the fundamental outlook continues to provide a constructive outlook for oil prices.

Aside from the oil market specifically, risk sentiment has been slightly softer with Eurozone equity markets edging lower following a slew of softer earnings from the likes of Deutsche Bank and RBS. Consequently, US equity futures are trading with modest losses this morning (-0.2%).
