Yesterday, was a great day for our forex trading signals. Both our signals on WTI Crude hit take profit, one after the other The signals, discussed in our update A Quick Profit In The WTI Crude Oil – What’s Next?, were close call as the market reversed right after testing our take profit at $46.60.

Despite the recent gains in the oil prices, the energy market has been under pressure over the past few weeks. This is due to the rising output of US shale oil, which is offsetting the impact of OPEC as well as the Non- OPEC members.

In an OPEC deal, Saudi Arabia, the world's top oil exporter, agreed to cut production by almost 1.8 million barrels per day (bpd) until the 1st quarter of 2018. However, the efforts seem to have a muted impact on the oil prices.

Forex Trading Signal – Idea

Today, in the absence of relevant economic events, we are left with trying to trade the choppy market. Having said that, we need to keep a close eye on the $45.95, as below this level, the market is likely to target $45.45.

On the other hand, I would like to stay in buying above $46, in order to target $46.60.
