WTI Crude Oil fell nearly 250 pips within minutes. Recalling our previous analysis on Crude Oil, we were expecting a bearish reversal, but it happened too fast to be captured. Roughly, the black crack tumbled more than 3% over the profit taking by buyers.

The new American Petroleum Institute (API) inventory figures recorded a draw of 5.76 million barrels followed by the unexpected 0.85 million barrel build last week. Yup, these figures were supposed to increase the demand for Black Crack, but it played a reverse role.
