US Crude oil prices have continued to surge after declining stockpiles provided bulls the opportunity to break through resistance,
formed by key Fibonacci levels of recent major moves.To get more news

After recovering to pre-pandemic levels, bullish momentum temporarily stalled at 6064.2, (the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of
the historical move) pushing price action into a tight range, between
the confines of symmetrical triangle.
However, the release of both the API (American Petroleum Institute) and EIA (Energy Information Administration) reports have supported Oils
bullish narrative, allowing buyers to regain dominance over short-term
price action.
WTI TECHNICAL ANALYSIS
With US Crude Oil prices currently trading above both the 8 and 34-period EMA on the daily and monthly chart, the Commodity Channel
Index (CCI) continues to linger into overbought territory.
Meanwhile,a MACD crossover below the zero line indicates that bullish momentum may continue to gain traction, which could see WTI
Crude Oil testing the next level of resistance, currently residing at
the key psychological level of 6500. Although hopes of a swift economic
recovery continue to support the demand for major commodities, the
decision to pause the distribution of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine
has increased concerns of further global lockdowns, forming a hinderance
for further gains.
At the time of writing, retail trader data shows 58.48% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.41 to 1. The
number of traders net-long is 7.76% lower than yesterday and 19.17%
lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 10.84%
higher than yesterday and 27.46% higher from last week.
We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests Oil - US Crude prices may continue to
fall.
Yet traders are less net-long than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current Oil - US Crude
price trend may soon reverse higher despite the fact traders remain
net-long.
