The bearish outside-week candle indicates the rally from the June 2017 low of $42.06 may have run out of steam. The sharp decline from $72.90 to $65.81 could be associated with fears that OPEC and Russia may ease self-imposed supply caps at the June 22 meeting in Vienna. Saudi energy minister Khalid Al-Falih said on Friday that the Kingdom and Russia are considering pumping more oil to ease supply concerns.
