WTI stalled its correction from two-week tops of $ 69.31 and entered a phase of consolidation this Monday, as bulls take a back seat amid a lack of fresh fundamentals and holiday-thinned trading. What is next? Peer into today’s 27 August WTI Crude Oil Price Technical Forecast for an idea.
27 August, Swissquote – The prices remain contained in a tight range, as the upside remains capped by persisting US-China trade tensions, after both the countries ended the trade talks inconclusively last week.
Meanwhile, the bulls continue to defend the downside, in response to the renewed weakness seen around the US dollar, following Fed Chair Powell’s dovish remarks on the interest rates. Further, expectations of tightening global supplies, as the US considers additional sanctions on Iran in November, targeting its oil sector. Iran is the OPEC’s no. 3 oil producer.
Looking ahead, the black gold awaits the weekly US crude stockpiles data for fresh direction on the prices, as falling rigs count and a drop in the US crude inventories continue to underpin the barrel of WTI.
