Morning Report: Crude Oil Futures for January Settlement

The 200 -days SMA formed a solid ground for the commodity , where price rebounded from the support area we mentioned yesterday to trade again above 97.00. We may see further upside attempts toward 98.00-99.00 areas and the previously breached ascending trend line. However, in general, bearishness could resume from those key resistance levels targeting another test of the Moving average.

The trading range for the day is among the major support at 94.00 and the major resistance at 100.00.

The short-term trend is to the downside with steady weekly closing below 105.00 targeting 65.00.
