Friday’s Technical Analysis: WTI Crude Oil
WTI Crude Oil closed lower Thursday.
The low range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening Friday.
Stochastics and the RSI have turned Bearish indicating that sideways to lower prices are possible near term.
If WTI Crude Oil extends Thursday’s decline, the reaction low crossing is the next Southside target.
US Crude Oil (USO) imports have been declining on the back of the shale Oil boom that has brought the US near energy independence.
Crude Oil’s collapse is largely attributed to lower global demand, which was accompanied by more production from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). OPEC members, seeking to defend their market share of a highly oversupplied Crude Oil market, have engaged in a ‘price ware.”
West Texas Intermediate (WTI), also known as WTI Crude Oil or Texas light sweet, is a grade of Crude Oil used as a benchmark in Oil pricing.
This grade is described as light because of its relatively low density, and sweet because of its low sulfur content.
Crude Oil is the underlying commodity of Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s COMEX Oil futures contracts.
The price of Crude Oil is often referenced in news reports on Oil prices, alongside the price of Brent Crudefrom the North Sea.
