WTI daily chart

On the daily chart, WTI is  hovering near the session’s high at $67.59 and is making efforts to extend gains beyond the level. If price sustained above the mentioned level, then it could be reaching fresh yearly highs at $69.50  horizontal resistance level.

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator reads comfortably above the midline with bullish crossover. This signified the  potential for more gains on the upside.

The gates will be open to recoup the levels last seen in 2018, with the first target at the May 2018 high  at $72.85 followed by the June 2018 high at $73.66  

Alternatively, if price reverses then bears would first attack the $66.50 horizontal support area. In doing so, price would next seek to stop near the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at $65.20 that extends from the lows of $57.27.

The selling pressure would further be intensified toward the low of May 24 at $63.58.
