- WTI remains pressured around intraday low, keeps upside break of 100-DMA.
- Upbeat RSI conditions add to the bullish catalysts.
- 50-DMA, two-month-old resistance line challenge short-term buyers.
WTI takes offers around an intraday low of $68.35, down 0.08% on a day around $68.50 amid Monday’s Asian session.
The black gold earlier rallied to the highest since August 06 before stepping back from $69.50. In doing so, the quote stays below 50-DMA and a descending resistance line from July 07.
However, firmer RSI and the energy benchmark’s daily closing beyond 100-DMA keeps oil buyers hopeful unless witnessing a daily closing below $68.15, comprising the stated key moving average.
Even if the commodity prices drop below $68.15, the $68.00 threshold and double bottoms near $65.00, marked since July 20, will challenge the WTI bears.
Meanwhile, the $70.00 round figure guards the quote’s immediate upside ahead of the 50-DMA and the stated resistance line, respectively around $70.30 and $70.85.
In a case where the WTI bulls keep reins past $70.85, the late July tops near $73.90 and the July 13 peak of $74.95 will entertain them ahead of directing to the last month’s high of $76.40.
