WTI Crude Shoots Higher to Regain $70.00

After reversing the dip to $ 69.50, the bulls are fighting back to gain control as WTI crude shoots higher to regain $70.00 handle. What is next expected?

12 September, OctaFX – The black gold pulled back from daily lows and now resumes its latest upbeat momentum, as sentiment around the commodity remains lifted by supply disruption concerns, fueled by the looming US sanctions on Iran.

API inventory report

Meanwhile, a draw down in the US crude stocks, as seen in the latest API inventory report, also collaborates to the buoyant tone seen around the barrel of WTI. The API data showed that the US crude stocks fell by 8.6 million barrels in the week to Sept. 7 to 395.9 million.

However, the bulls remain somewhat cautious amid ongoing US-China trade tensions and looming NAFTA talks between the US and Canada while the upcoming EIA crude inventories report also keeps the investors on the edge.
