Mar 27 2019 @ 04:04
Stalling at our $60 target, we suspect there could be further for upside potential for WTI judging from its bullish trend structure and encouraging signs from the weekly COT report.

The daily trend structure is firmly bearish, and the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level performed well as resistance. Friday’s break out of its 36-pip range marked the […]

Mar 21 2019 @ 04:12
