Crude Oil Tests Double Top – Brace for a Breakout
Arslan Butt • 1 min read
WTI crude oil prices are flashing red due to the data from the Amerian Petroleum Institute which showed that United States inventories increased last week. The US Crude Oil WTI futures lost 0.8% to $54.07.
Crude stockpiles increased by 4.5 million barrels for the week ended October 18, the API said. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) weekly report is scheduled to release tomorrow. Analysts expect the EIA to report a build of 2.23 million barrels.
WTI crude oil has fallen almost 18% from an April high as the United States and China trade war dragged on, and due to an increase in global supplies. The next OPEC meeting is not until December. The market will continue to trade carefully until then.
