WTI futures found resistance at Wednesday’s high of $114.05. This peak marks initial resistance and a break is required to confirm a resumption of the recent recovery that would open $116.58, the Jun 17 high. For bears, a stronger reversal lower from current levels would signal the end of the recent climb and this would refocus attention on the key support at $101.53, the Jun 22 low. A break would confirm a resumption of bearish activity.
