Crude oil continues to trade bullish as traders remained wary over the supply outlook, although the fallout from global trade tensions between the U.S. and E.U. limited price gains.

Before we proceed towards today’s technical outlook, let us recall that the WTI price has been under a selling pressure as trade tensions between the United States and China have heated up. However, the imminent sanctions on Iran have already begun to diminish flows of crude oil.
