Crude oil daily chart
The crude oil West Texas Intermediate (WTI) rejected the 65 handle while maintaining above the main SMAs. Thursday was a consolidation day and is about to end within Wednesday’s range.
Crude oil four-hour chart
Black gold is consolidating the sharp selloff to $59 a barrel and the 200 SMA on the four-hour chart. As the bears are keeping the pressure on, the market is more likely to continue to drift lower towards 57 and 55.50 price levels. However, a consolidation in the 61/59 range is not to be ruled out. Resistances are seen near 61, 62 and 63 handles.
