WTI Crude oil is hovering around $73.80. If closing below WTI will confirm down trend has resumed cancelling the Hammer bottom and reversal pattern from last week.
On the weekly chart the down trend is clear. WTI is trading in a wide falling channel and has been rejected at 100 weekly SMA. No support until the 0.382 retracement of the 2020-2022 uptrend at 65.25 and the strong support at around 61.82.
200 weekly SMA will provide some support.
