  • WTI struggles to remain strong around 10-week top of $34.74.
  • Weekly horizontal support add to the downside barriers.
  • Bulls may aim to fill the early-March gap during the fresh run-up.

WTI again bounces off the weekly support line while taking rounds to $34.05/10 amid the initial Asian session on Friday.

Even so, the black gold stays comfortably below the previous day’s top, also the highest since March 11, around $34.75.

In a case where the quote’s sustained trading beyond the support line enables it to cross $34.75, the bulls may target to fill the gap between March 11 top of $36.64 and March 06 low near $41.20.

Meanwhile, a downside break of $33.90, comprising the aforementioned support line, could drag the energy benchmark to the weekly horizontal support area near $33.10/33.00.

If at all the bears manage to dominate past-$33.00, $31.20 and $30.00 will be on their radars.
