  • Crude oil fell through the bullish trendline and reached the 68.30 support after the Baker Hughes weekly report revealed drillers added three rigs last week.  
  • Although crude oil took a $1 hit on the news, WTI prices should remain supported as oil is essentially having a pullback to 68.30 which is a key supply/demand level. However, failure to hold prices above the level can be interpreted as bullish weakness and more downside can be on the cards in such scenario.
