PIVOT POINT: 1905
WTI gained $2 yesterday amid the improved outlook towards the Chinese lockdown effect over crude oil demand. U.S. Crude is currently trading at $105.50 per barrel, which triggered the downtrend signal shown on the MACD.
Since this movement is purely news dependent, the trend is not clear unless crude oil prices broke out of the channel between $107 up which may drive the prices towards $115 or break beneath $103 which may drag the prices towards $100.80.
PIVOT POINT: 105.20
