Weekly Report

Oil retreated yesterday after testing 100.00 level, however it maintains fluctuations among 98.00-100.00 and around the 50-days SMA. The overall ranging stance is clearly illustrated on the above daily chart; although the price ability to breach the short term ascending support hinted further weakness within the upcoming period, we would love to see a daily closing below 98.00 areas to target the 200-days SMA around 95.00 major support area. In general, we maintain our short term bearish expectations.
