Heavy selloff sent oil to trade near 85.00. On the weekly chart we can see how the commodity breached the channel that was carrying price movement during the last three years and the 52 week SMA, and the latest lower low at 89.60 thus confirming that oil technically entered a possible bear market, all point toward more bearishness.
