“If oil prices continue to stabilize, producers in the U.S. and OPEC+ may find it difficult to avoid the temptation of re-opening the spigots. Global oil shipping rates have been ticking down which may hint at a moderation in the supply glut.”

“Thursday’s RSI above 70 may have hinted at overbought conditions, confirmed by Friday morning’s selloff which brought the RSI reading down to near 50.”
