WTI Crude Oil Take a Dip – Bearish Butterfly Does Well!
Arslan Butt • 1 min read
What’s up, traders.
The WTI black crack plunged more 250 pips in three days to trade below $74. This probably came in response to a dramatic build in inventories. During the previous week, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported a build of 8 million barrels of stocks, which is dramatically higher than the economists’ forecast of 1.1 million barrels. Initially, crude oil dipped but recovered the losses amid the imminent return of U.S. sanctions on Iran.
Key Trading Level: 74.42
Moreover, the bearish butterfly pattern on the daily chart is also attracting sellers. The pattern completed the C to D wave near $77.10. It violated the immediate support level of $74.40 on Friday and the bearish trend still seems dominant. The next support prevails at $72.75.
I will be looking to take a buying position somewhere around $72.75. Good luck and stay tuned to FX Leaders for more updates!
