Crude Oil price
Crude oil prices were down on Wednesday morning as fear of reduced demand amid rising covid-19 cases caught investors. Crude oil prices have slipped for 5 consecutive days now. Brent crude futures were trading at $68.98 per barrel on Friday. U.S. West Texas Intermediate futures were at $66.53 a barrel, according to Reuters.
“WTI Crude Oil prices continue to trade within a rising channel pattern on the weekly chart and the prices are currently settled near its lower band of the pattern. And the lower band of the pattern is supported with a 21- day exponential moving average which is acting as an anchor point for the prices. By contrast, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) on Thursday stuck to its forecast for a rebound in global oil demand this year and further growth in 2022, notwithstanding the rising concern over surges in COVID-19,” said Rohan Patil, Technical Analyst, Bonanza Portfolio.
