United States Oil (USO) focus turned to oversupply worries
Oil prices edged lower on Monday as the focus turned to oversupply worries, moving away from escalating tensions between the U.S. and Iran, which had driven prices higher early in the session.
There’s a lot of uncertainty in oil right now, which can cause some of the ups or downs to quickly change the market direction, especially after Iran drew Trump’s ire over the weekend.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
The projected upper bound is: 14.85.
The projected lower bound is: 13.32.
The projected closing price is: 14.08.
