WTI is Bullish but Watch for Crude Oil Inventories Data

December 13, 2017 11:47

Earlier this week, Oil prices rose as U.S. crude stockpiles showed a drawdown larger-than-expected late last week. In addition, Britain's largest pipeline from its oil and gas fields in the North Sea had an unexpected shutdown for several weeks due to cracks appearing. This pipeline carries about 450,000 barrels per day (bpd) of Forties crude, and causing supply constraints as the pipeline is the largest out of the five crude oil streams that underpin the Brent benchmark.

However, Oil prices fell again overnight most likely due to technical resistance at USD58.60 bbl. Even despite the massive Crude Oil Inventories drawdown last week, production from Crude Oil in the United States has steadily grown from 8.946 million bpd per week starting January this year and reaching an average of 9.707 million bpd for the week ending December 1.

All eyes will be on Crude Oil Inventories data from USA later today. Technically the WTI is bullish and we see 2 POC zones where it could bounce. 57.80-58.00 is the first POC zone while 57.30-40 is the POC2. Additionally we see an inverted SHS pattern that is bullish. However if the results come worse than expected, the WTI might drop below 56.65 aiming for 55.85.
