Morning Report: Crude Oil Futures for January Settlement

The commodity found resistance at the descending resistance of the descending triangle formation, to reverse course again, trading remain above the critical support areas as well around 95.50 and the 200 days SMA where the trading range is getting narrower. We anticipate a breakout in either direction sooner or later. Breaching above 97.20 could lead to further incline again while trading below 95.30 may result in more bearishness.

The trading range for the day is among the major support at 93.00 and the major resistance at 99.60.

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